About Me

Hello Everyone! Welcome to ChemoCouture!  My name is Krysta Rodriguez and I’ll be chronicling my journey through chemotherapy and beyond. Here’s a little info about me:

B.C. (Before Cancer)

I am an actress/singer/dancer most known for my roles on Broadway and Television. For the past 12 years I’ve made my living in New York in such shows as First Date, The Addams Family, In The Heights, A Chorus Line, Spring Awakening and Good Vibrations. I also appeared on NBC’s televised ode to Broadway “Smash” as Ana, the high flying, day drinking Diva. In addition to performing, I’ve always had a passion for art, fashion, decoration and overall beautification. I try to have fun with fashion and design and make it my goal to enjoy it and share it with others

A.D. (After Diagnosis)

Well fortunately, I’m still all of those things! But now with a twist. Since being diagnosed with breast cancer in the fall of 2014 on the heels of my 30th birthday, I’m taking this passion of beautification to my treatment. I’ve always believed you feel better when you look better. And what better time to test that out than when I’m gonna be feeling pretty terrible for while! This blog will be dedicated to all things fun and fashion, while being focused on the specific needs of those women going through chemo. My goal is to have us all feeling beautiful together, wherever you are in your life.

To love, health, and beauty,
