Long Live Kyrzayda Rodriguez a Fashion Pioneer

I have an affinity for a stylist woman who serves her confidence daily. Kyrzayda Rodriguez, was that woman. She was born in the Dominican Republic, was a pioneer in fashion, rising through the ranks as a leader in the Latina blogging community.

Rodríguez first announced her diagnosis of stomach cancer in November 2017 and remained candid about her condition on her Instagram feed, constantly updating followers on her day-to-day fight with stomach chancer. 

I watched her style evolve, her scalp begin to peak through her thinning hair and her curves fade away. Kyrzada's strength, candor positivity and vulnerability made her more beautiful. Through her posts there was positivity, there was selfless encouragement, she was going through the fight of her life and had the space in her heart to give, to be warm, to inspire to be holy and not resentful. 

Kyrzayda Rodríguez passed away on Sunday, September 9, 2018. 
Kyrzayda Rodriguez is a modern style icon. Her effortless beauty, individualistic style, and her powerful presence will live on forever. Kyrzayda did not lose her battle with cancer. She WON, she fought boldly and in color, she touched the world and leaves behind a legacy of power, of love and of a destiny fulfilled. A truly inspirational person who has shared her journey throughout the course of the cancer, followers and the fashion community. 

We miss you Kryzayda! 
May you continue to rest in your peace.
