Dia & Co. Clothing Subscription Box Review – August 2017
Dia & Co. is a monthly plus size clothing subscription box that is personally curated for you by a Dia stylist. Upon enrolling with Dia, I filled out an extensive survey asking me about my clothing size/weight/height, price range, and also my style likes and dislikes. Every month my stylist selects five pieces that could be clothes or accessories to try out. If I like them, I have the option of buying them. There is a $20 per month service fee, but the fee can be applied to any purchases I opt to make. A 20% discount is applied if I choose to keep all five pieces too!
The items in my box are chosen personally for me dependent and reflective of my style and price preference, so the package you receive from Dia & Co. may be entirely different than mine!
My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

I am quite the fan of their trademark geometric animal print envelope. It is snazzy to say the least!
Enclosed in the stylish envelope is a lovely note from my stylist, Natalie, telling me why she selected the pieces she did for me and suggestions on how to style them.
The other form is an invoice that has a detailed list of the brand, name, color, size, and price of each item she selected for me along with the grand total after the styling fee and 25% off ( if I opt to keep all five items) is applied. The savings would be $86.75 if I did decide to keep them all. You can’t beat that price. The amount I save is like getting the clutch and the Charlotte Cowl Back Tee for free!
Candy Blouse by Sharagano Sportswear, size 3x—Cost to Keep $49
When I first opened my box from Dia & Co., this blouse was on top and I recall literally saying out loud, “Uhhh… what the heck?” I was not sure how to feel about this shirt. I love clashing patterns, but I felt like this was possibly taking it too far. My stylist, Natalie, said in her note to be open minded about this top; and as soon as I put it on, I understood what she meant. I am partial to the color orange and I instantly wanted to pair this top with my newly acquired yellow Eloquii pencil skirt. The material of this shirt is a light, polyester/chiffon fabric. It doesn’t have stretch, but the shirt fits perfectly; it’s not too snug or too baggy. I love the look of it being tucked into a high waist skirt, but I agree with Natalie that it would have looked fantastic with a pair of skinny leg jeans as well. This top is actually a strong contender in my keep pile— GO FIGURE!?
Charlotte Cowl Back Tee by East Adeline, size 3x—Cost to Keep $45
This navy/periwinkle top is a nice basic piece with extraordinary accents. The cowl neck of this shirt drapes in a really dramatic and flattering way. The cut out that exposes the back is a really flirty and unexpected detail. I really like the slinky cotton polyester fabric blend of this shirt and how it drapes on my figure. This top will pair well with jeans and cute flats, but would also look great with a pencil skirt and heels in the office.
Emmia Infinite Stretch Skinny by RWN by Rawan, size 24—Cost to Keep $65
This is the second time my stylist has put in a pair of Rawan jeans in my box, and I must say I really love them. I only wear high waist skinny leg jeans, and these fit like a dream! The denim has incredible stretch and is so buttery soft. I usually avoid any faded or distressed jeans, but I really love this soft black/charcoal gray rinse. These may have to go in the potential keep pile as well!
Vivi Clutch (no brand)—Cost to Keep $39
If you follow my reviews, you probably have gathered that I love versatile pieces. I like clothing that can be worn for multiple seasons and I also like convertible purses that can be worn in a number of ways. With a convertible clutch like this, you are essentially getting two purses for the cost of one! This clutch can be dressed up or down for any event you attend. I also like the olive/darkened bronze, metallic matte shade of this purse; it is rather unique. The purse is deceptively roomy; it has a few zippered compartments too to keep your items securely organized. I give it an A+ for value!
Beverly Hills High-Low Wrap Dress, size 3x—Cost to Keep $69
Much like the previously mentioned Candy blouse; my first impression of this dress was “MEH.” I avoid the color brown like the plague. The only thing in my closet that is brown is a faux fur cape. However, once I put this on, I fell for it hook, line, and sinker. The fabric of this dress is an incredibly soft and stretchy cotton jersey material. The short bell sleeves and maxi length combined with the wrap style are incredibly flattering. I felt like an even sassier modern day version of Mrs. Roper from Three’s Company in this dress! Natalie really knocked it out of the park with this one!
Verdict: The one thing I really love about getting Dia & Co. boxes from my stylist, Natalie, is that she really pays attention to detail. She not only listens to my feedback monthly, but she takes that feedback and sends me pieces I would never have chosen for myself. It is allowing me to broaden my style and tastes; which is a wonderful thing! The $20 stylist fee is well worth it for such a personalized and convenient service as Dia & Co. provide! I honestly can’t wait to see the surprises in store for me in next month’s box.
