The Last Shadow Puppet

As you may have noticed, I recently changed the name of my blog. It used to be called simply "The Kyliebabii", which was a nickname given to me by my peers back when I was still living in Thailand. The name had an endearing sentimental value to me, purely because it in some way connected me back to my past self. Even now that I've moved to the Philippines, my new friends and classmates and even my professors regularly refer to me as "the Kyliebabii". I guess it has become a kind of trademark or brandname of mine, which is why I originally named my blog after it. You see, I really wanted my blog to become my brand, and at the time I felt that naming it "the Kyliebabii" was a good choice.



At this point in my life, however, I'm finally starting to realize that some things are better left in the past. No matter how much I wish I could just hold on to certain things, I can no longer deny that things really do change, whether I'm ready for it or not. I cannot stop time from moving forward, and I've realized that it is my choice how this will affect my life. I could either go with the flow and accept the changes that are happening, or I could lay in misery and long for a past that is long gone. Today, I have finally made a decision. I choose to be happy.



PREPPY CARDIGAN from BAYO
GREY CHAMBRAY TOP from Topshop
BLACK RIPPED SKINNY JEANS from Forever 21
STATEMENT NECKLACE from Chick Flick
SNAKESKIN SANDALS from Aldo
CAVIAR 2.5 CLASSIC FLAP from Chanel

I've been spending the last three years of my life stuck in a personal timeloop, cursed into reliving past memories over and over again and forgetting to live my present life to the fullest. It took me this long to accept the reality that I am no longer living in Thailand. All of my friends have been moving on with their lives whereas I was just frozen in a time that no longer exists. Seeing all my Thai friends growing up and moving on to new chapters in their lives made me angry at first. I felt betrayed, because I wanted them to keep longing for the past just like I have been doing. Now I realize how shallow I've been acting, and I am finally over it. I am ready to accept change and live my life here in the Philippines. Fashionably, of course ;)


So what do you guys think of this outfit? I woke up today feeling very conflicted between dressing up "preppy" or dressing down "edgy", so I just decided to mix both styles and paired my new preppy cardigan with my distressed skinny jeans. I like how it turned out though.



Now that I'm trying to leave the past behind, I've decided to get rid of the name "Kyliebabii" as well. I wanted the name of my blog to be something memorable, but still representative of my personality. Hence the name "The Stylish Bipolar". I chose this because my life and my moods are very unpredictable most of the time, but no matter what life throws at me, I'll be sure to handle all of the trials and difficulties with style.


And on that note, I end this blog post. I hope you all enjoyed the weekend. :) 
Here's to moving on!

  2. Good to know that you choose to be happy. Happiness is indeed a choice and leaving things in the past does not have to mean you're forgetting the memories, sometimes it just means you're moving forward with your life. :)

  14. Oh i feel you all right Kylie, ive been like that forever and i don't know if i had overcome myself being frozen in time. I know it kinda hurts how our friends are living and moving on with their life while our selves are still stuck and still longing, but i guess it's part of the process of how we see things, of how we carry on our lives. And who knows, maybe they're dealing with things we're going through right? :)
