Dia & Co. Subscription Review – April 2016

dia-apr

Dia & Co
2.5 overall rating
74 Ratings | 23 Reviews

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 Cost: $20 Styling fee (Pay for whatever items you keep minus the $20 credit)

dia-apr-note

This is the note I received from my new stylist this month, Tori.

dia-apr-invoice

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 $104.40 if I kept all five items. That’s a deep discount!

dia-apr-kiyonna

Chrystie Knit Wrap Dress by Kiyonna – Cost to Keep $98

I love Kiyonna! This dress is comfortable yet, like all Kiyonna pieces, super sexy. I just don’t need another black dress right now, so sadly, I have to send this one back.

dia-apr-lace

Lace Sheath Dress by BB Dakota – Cost to Keep $112

Now that it’s spring, I’m not really feeling this color. I also requested no sleeveless items on my profile. This dress has a lovely shape, but it’s not right for me.

dia-apr-jeggings

Denim Jeggings by Lysse – Cost to Keep $82

These jeggings are cute, but honestly, I don’t know what qualifies them as jeggings because they don’t feel like denim at all! Also, I already have too many black leggings, which I don’t even need at the moment because it’s now bare legs season here in the South. I have to send these back, too.

dia-apr-top

Alexa Top by Oddi – Cost to Keep $46

I wish they had sent me this top in the fall! It’s super cute and has a wonderful fit to it! It’s actually lightweight enough to wear right now, but not for long. It just feels like more of a fall piece.

dia-apr-blouse

Patterned Peasant Blouse by BB Dakota – Cost to Keep $84

I love this top! It’s so soft and lightweight, and I love the print and colors and everything! Plus I really like the little peek-a-boo keyhole tie in the front. It’s not open, so it’s still pretty modest, but once in a while you see just a little flash of skin. Perfect! Unfortunately, I have too many tops like this already. I might need to go clear out some things in my closet to make room for new stuff!

Verdict: I love Dia & Co.! Unfortunately, this box was a little bit of a miss for me, but it’s not really their fault. I mean, they sent me pieces that are so much my style that I already owned them! My only complaint this month is that I am ready for spring and summer clothing, and I don’t really get the warm weather vibe from these pieces. Otherwise, I am really enjoying my Dia & Co. Subscription!

I agree there were no spring colors in my easter box either, just black, red, and metallic. Totally fall and winter. I did keep the dress but haven’t worn it yet. I tried for three months and only kept the black dress shown in this post. Fit, fabrics, and color were all a miss for me unfortunately!

Traci

So this was my first box with them, gwennie bee was a miss. I liked a couple of the tops, but I need to exchange a dress for a size up and send back the rest. How do I do the exchange, does anyone know? The directions aren’t really clear. You can set your price point too! Most of my items were around $30, but my stylist knew I went back to school.

I got my first box this month. I had a fall/winter maxi dress in a burgandy color . It was long sleeve & a pretty thick material. I recieved a burgandy color caradigan that was cute but I had just recieved one thru my stich fix subscription, I loved the top they sent which was a summer/spring style . I aslo recieved a nice pair of black leggings & black clutch bag. I loved the clutch but didn’t need it . So I felt like everything but the blouse was all meant for cold weather also. Maybe they are cleaning out th e fall/winter stuff. But I felt also it was items meant for colder waether,

Saiza

Aha I found the BB Dakota lace dress on Nordstromrack.com on clearance for $45 in that color. Nordstrom has the same dress in a green color for $112. IF you like it and if you want to keep it and wear an 18 or 20, you can show them that price and I think they price match. But I’m not positive, that might have only been Gwynnie Bee. I also noticed other bloggers got that BB Dakota peasant top in January, it seems more weather appropriate then. I feel like that shirt would be on clearance now too.

Anna

Yes, they definitely price match. Thanks Saiza!

Krista

Cute stuff! I looooooooooooove Kiyonna.

Anna

Me toooooooooo! 🙂

I did not have a good run with Dia&Co. Just currently had to cancel. I felt like I spent so much time updating my status and keeping my Pintrest and Instagram updated and really discussing what I wanted – it was just 4 months of misses for me. I may be “plus-sized” but I found things very frumpy. Or a total miss with my style. I hope it works for others, I love the idea.

Kelly

My experience too!

Sara

I canceled too, I had them for a few months and it was always super disappointing. One month nothing fit period, and I kept getting black clothes or blouses. I specifically said no blouses, and I wanted colors and prints. I almost never got them. Their customer service leaves something to be desired. I didn’t get a box one month, though they charged me for it. They weren’t going to say anything about it either, until I emailed them asking where my box was. It was like the stylist never listened to anything I said at all, the bloggers and youtubers get way better boxes. They get awesome name brands, I never got name brands until my last box and I canceled. I haven’t regretted that or canceling Gwynnie Bee. I LOVE the idea of Dia & Co and wanted it to work so much; but it didn’t for me.

Joellen

My only question is, what if you don’t want anything? Do they just keep the 20$ or is it credited to use the next box? And IMO, all of those clothes looked like end of season items. Wonder if you always get those types of clothes, like a season too late!?

Anna

Joellen,yes, if you don’t want anything you forfeit your styling fee. No, you don’t usually get items that are out of season. I hope this helps! 🙂

Annie

It’s still to COLD where I am for any of these! I’m still wearing sweaters everyday. However, I have been digging through to find the lighter colors so I can at least PRETEND its spring!

WendyinCA

I liked their choices, but it totally said ‘Fall’ to me- which made me think of out-of-season items. But those aren’t discounted prices. I wonder if their Summer things are cute? Even the sleeveless dress could have a jacket paired with it (in the Fall). Perplexing.

Anna

Agreed. When you return items they ask you to fill out a questionnaire about everything you received, and I noted that these are fall/winter pieces. I also asked to please make sure they send spring / summer in the next box. So here’s hoping!

Ragan

I always wear long pants, even in the middle of summer (in Georgia). But my legs are so white they’d probably blind people who saw them…I don’t wear sleeveless stuff, either.

Don’t you think the colors of these items are very dark for this time of year? Granted, I am wearing mostly black today, myself. But I am certainly nowhere near being fashionable!

Anna

Ragan! LOL! My legs are white *and* chubby. It’s too hot here to wear long pants in the summer! If I can do it, you can do it! 😉

Ragan

We will see. I don’t actually own any shorts (haven’t for probably more than 20 years) because I hate the look. But I might be convinced to wear a skirt or dress. Although then I would have to shave my legs more often.

I am going to have to get a new wardrobe in the next few months anyway because I have lost a bunch of weight and all my pants are too big (waiting to do so until I hit my goal so I don’t have to buy TWO new wardrobes).

Saiza

Own up to your paleness! I have blindingly white legs and don’t care, I wear shorts in summer, lol it’s too hot. I only used to wear jeans, but have slowly gotten over that. I don’t do sleeveless shirts either, just short sleeved shirts and shorts. I agree this looks more like a winter box than a spring/summer one. I have a purple lace dress almost just like that one, just brighter purple I got at Lane Bryant long ago for less than $50.

Megan

I really like those pieces. I might try this box. The only thing is that I don’t have $300 a month to spend on clothes.

Dootsie Bug

Gurl, just go with Gwynnie Bee. I’ve been eyeing this box for a long time, and I’ve just decided that it’s not the right fit with my budget. With GB, you actually get to wear the clothes and they tend to be discounted.
