Dia & Co. Subscription Review – March 2016
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: 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 new stylist this month, Brett.
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 $101.20 if I kept all five items. That’s a deep discount!
Hooded Knit Top by Prospero – Cost to Keep $52
This top is soooo cute, and it has the perfect balance of classic and edgy that I adore! Unfortunately, for some reason light heather gray is the worst color ever on me. Sadly, this has to go back.
Slim Medium Blue Distressed Jeans by Junarose – Cost to Keep $119
You might be starting to think I’m a jeans junkie with all the jeans I’ve been keeping from my subscription boxes lately, and maybe I am becoming one! I haven’t owned a good pair of distressed jeans in ages, and the main reason is because my legs are chubby and I inevitably wind up poking out of the larger holes in my jeans. These jeans, however, have a mesh type patch over the distressed areas, so no holes! How cool is that? Plus they’re flattering and just overall really cool looking! I’m keeping these!
Crochet Yoke Dress by BB Dakota – Cost to Keep $96
This dress is super cool and actually really flattering. I’m just not comfortable showing that much skin! Back it goes.
Long Sleeve Top by BB Dakota – Cost to Keep $60
I’m on the fence about this blouse. I love the color, and I think the fabric is some kind of silk blend. I also love the style of the raw edges everywhere, and the notch in the back. It’s really cool. On the other hand, it’s getting warm fast, so I don’t know how many uses I will get out of this. Plus I think I would have to iron it often, and I just detest ironing. I haven’t decided yet!
3/4 Sleeve Blouse by Modamix – Cost to Keep $79
This top is a beautiful color, and I really like the pleating on the front. But, I just got a couple of blouses in this chiffon material from Dia last month, so I think I’m going to send this one back.
Verdict: I love Dia & Co.! It took them a little while to get my style down pat, but now that they have, they’ve become one of my favorite boxes every month. They have started sending me really cool pieces regularly. They also do price matching and size exchanges, so that makes their service just that much more valuable to me. I’m a big fan!
What do you think of Dia & Co.? What pieces did you get this month?
