Dia & Co. Subscription Box Review – August 2016
Dia & Co. is a monthly clothing styling subscription service for plus sizes. 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: I now have first-hand experience, 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.

This is the note I received from my stylist this month, Stephanie, explaining why she chose each item. They changed the printed material a bit this month to include this pretty and funky letter with the note on one side and the invoice on the other!
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 $71.20 if I kept all five items. That’s a deep discount!
Morgan Necklace – Cost to Keep $35
One option you have with Dia is to have accessories sent to you as one or more of your options. I think I have requested not to get accessories in the past, and this is the first time I have received any. I don’t want accessories from Dia, so I made sure to note that when I logged in to “rate my items” this month. It’s a pretty necklace, but it’s not really my style.
Mable Dress by Junarose – Cost to Keep $59
I normally love Junarose, and I love the print on this dress, but this is just the wrong shape for me. It has that “sack” effect. It reminds me of dresses that elderly women in the south used to wear when I was growing up. I’m not ready to look that way yet!
Ryan Dress by Emerald – Cost to Keep $62
This dress, however, is awesome! I didn’t like it on myself when I first tried it on for some reason. I think I assumed the print would be too big. My husband (the photographer, btw) loved it, though, and he said it made me look like “Classic Hollywood.” When I look at the pictures, I think I agree with him! Is this the summer that I finally fill my closet with maxi dresses? It just might be!
Kaylee Blouse by Zenobia – Cost to Keep $42
I didn’t like this blouse at all when I pulled it out of the box, but when I tried it on, I loved it! I really like the open neckline, and it’s a little different than something I would normally wear. It’s a keeper!
Knit Jersey Twist Top by Kiyonna – Cost to keep $58
I love this top, too! I actually just got this exact same top in taupe from my Wantable Style Edit. I think I prefer this color, but I already kept the other one, so this one will have to go back, unfortunately.
Verdict: Dia & Co. is one of my favorite subscription boxes! It’s true that it took a month or so for them to get my style down, but lately they have been sending me lots and lots of good stuff. I kept two pieces this month and would have kept the Kiyonna top if I didn’t already have it! I just hope they don’t send me any more accessories. I also love that Dia kind of makes me step out of my comfort zone and try new things. It’s awesome!
What do you think of Dia & Co.? What pieces did you get this month?
