Dia & Co. Subscription Review – October 2015
Dia & Co. is a monthly clothing styling subscription service for plus sizes. I have been waiting for ages for someone to start this kind of service! When I signed up for the service, I filled out a fairly in-depth questionnaire about my likes and dislikes, my size, my price range, and other questions that might help my stylist. Every month my stylist sends five pieces for me to try out. The service fee is $20 per month, but that fee is applied to any item I decide to keep. Additionally, there is a 20% discount if I decide to keep all five pieces!
FYI – My items are reflective of my style and price preferences, so your package from Dia & Co. may be completely different!
My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
The Subscription Box: Dia & Co.
The Cost: $20 Styling fee (Pay for whatever items you keep minus the $20 credit)
The Products: 5 plus-size clothing items selected for you based on your Style Profile.
Ships to: US Only, shipping is free both ways
Good to Know: Last month I learned from our readers that Dia & Co. DOES price match! So if you like something and want to keep it, but find it for less somewhere else, Dia & Co. will sell the item to you for that price. I wish I had known that last month!
Dia & Co. applied this little instruction card to the inside of the box. It explains a bit more about how the service works logistically. Very helpful!
This is the invoice for the items they sent this month. It shows each item and the cost to keep, plus the cost of the items totaled. Then at the bottom it shows the total with the styling fee credited and the 20% discount for keeping all five items. The discount this month would be $88 if I kept all five items. That’s a deep discount!
Kiyonna Drawstring Cardigan – Cost to Keep $58
This was my favorite item in the box this month, and I kept it! It’s really flattering, and it’s a nice, neutral color. Perfect!
Solid Infinity Scarf – Cost to Keep $35
This scarf was beautiful and super soft. Dark purple is also my favorite color in the world! Unfortunately, I already have way too many scarves, and I get a steady supply of new ones in subscription boxes, so I just couldn’t justify keeping it.
Modamix Motorcycle Jacket – Cost to Keep $124
This jacket was really unflattering on me. It was shiny and bulky and made of polyurethane. This went back.
Levi’s Skinny Jeans – Cost to Keep $59
These are really nice jeggings! Unfortunately, all leggings, skinny jeans, and jeggings are unflattering on me. I wish I could keep them, but… back they go!
Modamix Floral Pencil Skirt – Cost to Keep $64
This skirt, on the other hand, was very flattering! The black “negative space” on the sides has a bit of a slimming effect. I decided in the end to send it back, though, because I don’t ever really wear skirts.
The Verdict: This was my second package from Dia & Co., and so far this has been a really fun experience! I also have to note that they have excellent customer service, for the record. I’m a bit of a picky clothing shopper, and I have to keep to a budget, otherwise I would have kept the scarf and skirt as well. The only thing that was disappointing to me this month is that I had requested a denim jacket – I’m still searching for my perfect fall denim jacket! They sent the moto jacket instead. I appreciate their trying to push me on this style point, but it doesn’t adhere to my boho chic aesthetic at all. Otherwise, I am loving my Dia & Co. subscription!
