Dia & Co. Clothing Subscription Box Review – May 2017

This post may contain referral/affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

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!

I love Dia & Co.‘s new packaging and printed material! They always make everything look so pretty. It always feels like such a special package!

This is the note I received from my stylist this month, Patricia, explaining why she chose each item. She also gives really helpful styling suggestions!

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 $113.75 if I kept all five items. That’s a deep discount!

Clea Top by Jessica Simpson – Cost to Keep $69.50

What a cool top! My husband really liked this one. It’s a lightweight denim, almost a chambray, but I love the dark indigo color. I also love the way it is cut, both front and back.

Kendra Skinny Jeans by Kut From the Kloth – Cost to Keep $98

I love the print on these so much! I think they might be a bit snug, though. They feel pretty good, but I’m wondering if it’s just bad news to have a lighter print on my legs in this super skinny style. I was hoping these would work when I pulled them out of the box, but I don’t know.

Shay Long Sleeve Blouse by Modamix – Cost to Keep $69

This is a lovely color blouse, and I really like the exaggerated sleeve opening at the cuff (second picture). It’s a double layer chiffon, and I’m actually thinking that it will be too warm for the summer months here in the South. I might have to pass on this one.

Ramsay Crochet Tee by Dex Plus – Cost to Keep $49

I absolutely love this tee! I was hoping the black bra straps would look kind of sexy with this, but I think I will go with beige next time. In any case, it’s a nice soft cotton with a beautiful crochet pattern (machine lace) on the shoulders and back yoke. I think this will be super cute all summer!

Helena Shift Dress by Jessica Simpson – Cost to Keep $89.50

I would never in a million years have picked this out for myself, but once I tried it on, I totally loved it! Usually, chambray shift dresses make me look like a hospital patient, but this one is so cute! How is it actually flattering? The mysteries of fashion.

Verdict: Dia & Co. is one of my favorite subscription boxes, and this month was no exception! I might have to pass on the jeans and the chiffon blouse, but I loved everything else! I just love that they continue to surprise me with cool pieces I would never have picked out for myself. It’s so fun! Overall, I have been very pleased with Dia & Co. They have excellent customer service, and their pieces tend to be more reasonably priced than a lot of other styling services.

What do you think of Dia & Co.? What pieces did you get this month?

  1. I was reading the reviews and everyone is saying that the clothes are to high and you can find these looks yourself for cheaper… I want to try them out to see…BUT NOW IM SKEPTICAL…

    • Most of the clothes they send are more expensive than what you would buy at Target or even Kohl’s. The flip side is the clothes they send are of excellent quality. You can find similar items for lower prices in retail, but you usually can’t match the quality.

      • For me, I guess I think of Target and Kohl’s as inexpensive options for clothing. Prices on Dia more than reasonable.

  2. I love the crocheted top and the skinny jeans on you! I am awaiting my third and likely LAST box from Dia. I really don’t think the stylist has read anything I have posted! Last month’s box was horrible! I kept the scarf so I wasn’t out $20!

  3. I am expecting my first box at the end of the week. Unfortunately, I have to go out of town on business and won’t even get to open it for about a week. What happens if you don’t rate and return items within the 5 days?

  4. I was disappointed with my last Dia box. The clothes were ugly! They sent me a bright red polyester wrap dress which I would never wear, and a hot pink chiffon top which clashed horribly with my skin tone, as well as a dowdy black skirt. I I am scouring the site for clothes I like but unable to make recommendations. So sad, because last year I got two really great boxes of clothes I loved.

  5. Love the crochet shirt on you. I like shirts with a little something extra. The back is everything. I’m thinking about ordering a box. Thanks for this!!!

  6. Crochet tee looks great on you (and the price isn’t too outrageous).

  7. Generic clothes! That are NOT even Boho. Boring Wal-Mart quality for Nordstrom prices.I am So glad I saw this review before I wanted my time and money on a subscription!

  8. Maybe it’s just me but I wouldn’t have been happy to get two nearly identical Jessica Simpson items in a single box! That first top is amazing but to also get the dress which is just a longer version without breast pockets feels lazy to me.

    Love the Kut from the Kloth jeans but hate the pricing – I’d look for them elsewhere for less, especially since you’d have time before fall hits.

    The Modamix blouse is the epitome of why I canceled my Dia & Co sub – I got blouses like that in every box despite my feedback. For you, the color is good and I know you love your open neckline but I would have stuffed that in the bottom of the returns bag without a second look.

    The Dex Plus crochet top looks so sweet on you and I’d keep it if I was in the market for a $50 t-shirt.

    Great review once again, Anna, and please don’t misconstrue my critique as criticism of you – you’re gorgeous as always and frankly make some of these fashions look better than they are!

  9. Love that dress on you! It’s the only one I’d keep from your box! My box this month was pretty much a total bust. I asked for spring clothes and they sent me two pairs of jeans (one black, one grey with nothing unique to them), a long sleeve denim shirt, a black shirt with a rhinestone pattern across the bottom and a necklace. definitely not my idea of spring!

  10. The two short sleeve tops and dress are really flattering, but I keep thinking how many items you could get instead at a thrift store or elsewhere for the same amount of money…envious you get to try on so much clothing, it must be fun!

    • I just can’t imagine spending this much on shirts – and my husband and I have quite a comfortable income.

  11. I LOVE the crochet tee! They sent me an awesome, navy blue, duster style cardigan last month by Dex and I have already worn it several times.

  12. Is it 20% or 25% off if you keep everything? The review says 20% but the receipt says 25%. Thanks!

  13. Polls not loading for me either.

    Yikes the price of these clothes are unreal. They are cute but you can go to Ross, Tj Maxx, Kohls…the list goes on, for so much cheaper. I guess if you aren’t close or like to shop but still I can’t get over the cost of these clothes subs.

    • Exactly! Even if I think things look really cute, I tend to vote return because the costs are ridiculous!

      • I am willing to pay more for great clothes, but not for meh clothes. So I too tend to vote return unless I really love it. Like it isn’t good enough.

  14. The polls aren’t loading, but I say keep, keep, keep, keep, and keep! 🙂

  15. Everything looks amazing on you. I think blue is your color. I’ve become really frustrated with Dia I recently requested a box specifically for a trip and told them that I wanted coordinated pieces that could mix together. YOU got the box that I wanted!! Everything they sent me was a mishmash and nothing that was really usable for travel or easily coordinated. Too bad. FYI- I recently got a fantastic box from Moda that was perfect.

  16. Keep this one: Ramsay Crochet Tee by Dex Plus

  17. Anna, that dress! If money is no object, keep it and the blue top, too.

  18. That dress looks amazing on you!
