Dia & Co. Clothing Subscription Box Review – June 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).

The packaging is so colorful and adorable. It has lovely touches like this envelope even; I feel like I am getting a little present in the mail!
Included in the previously mentioned envelope is a note from my stylist, Kiara, detailing why she selected the pieces that she did 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 $76.22 if I did decide to keep them all. Not shabby. That is essentially a free dress!
Severa Dress by Junarose, size 22 – Cost to keep $69.00
I am going to be honest with you guys; when I initially opened my box I was really put off by the tie dye on this dress. I am not a big fan of distressed items or tie-dyed clothes typically. The explanation for it being chosen in my mind is that I said I gravitate towards 60s style clothes in my survey. That all being said, this turned out to be my favorite item in the box! I loved it on me! Go figure! More evidence to back up my theory that you should try everything on; you just never know! The dress is made of a very breezy and light cotton material that is absolutely perfect for humid summer days. It would be great for a day at the beach in sandals and a floppy hat. I paired it with a pair of black cat eye sun glasses and my deep red cowboy booties that I own along with the necklace that my Dia & Co. stylist picked out for me. I could envision this even translating into cooler weather months in the fall with a leather biker jacket (my personal favorite go to) and black tights perfectly too!
Gold Uma Necklace, OS – Cost to keep $28
This necklace is deceiving in that it comes off as a bit plain, but it stood out so beautifully against everything I tried it on with. I love the gold! I liked the length and where it hit me as well. It is a basic piece that is extremely versatile, but at $28 I just couldn’t justify keeping it in my mind.
Laurie Peasant Top by d/c JEANS, size 2x – Cost to keep $44
This peasant top is another item that I think was selected because it has a very Bohemian 60s vibe. I put this on and couldn’t help but hum to myself, “If you’re going to San Francisco/Be sure to wear some flowers in your hair… “ Don’t you just think of a daisy chain when you look at it? I liked the color orange and paired it with other warm accessorries like my orange jellies and a yellow purse. The top is very comfortable in a soft cotton fabric. All that being said, I felt as though I could find the top in a Forever 21 or Lane Bryant for less if I wanted to. I felt luke warm about it, ultimately.
Skinny Jeans by Fashion to Figure, size 24 – Cost to keep $39
Jeans shopping can be the bane of our existence, am I right? Seriously, it is like the hunt for the Holy Grail at times. I, myself, am very selective about the rinse and cut of jeans. I am always on the look out for the perfect high waisted, darker rinse, skinny jeans. My stylist did not disappoint with these Fashion to Figure jeans! They hit my waist perfectly; they fit just right! Absolutely amazing. They have a great stretch and the cut is incredibly flattering. I did the sit test too, so don’t you worry: they passed with flying colors. The price is right too at $39!
Sophia Mixed- Media Top, size 3x – Cost to keep $45
The mix of the cotton and chiffon like fabrics on this top are interesting and I love polka dots, but ultimately the cut on this was not flattering on me. I am a hippy and curvy girl, but this shirt didn’t accentuate my hips or curves in a way I like. It was just too boxy on me and I wasn’t feeling it. I feel like this top could look fantastic on someone else, but it just wasn’t for me. Sadly, my shoes said it all on how I felt about this shirt on me.
Verdict: This is my very first Dia & Co. box and it had some strong hits and misses. The tie dye dress, jeans, and necklace were my favorite, but both tops disappointed me in terms of style and cut. Three out of five is not bad, though.
The great thing about Dia & Co. is they encourage feedback to tailor their choices to your personal style better. I am definitely taking advantage of that and working with my stylist. I am really looking forward to seeing what they end up choosing for me next month with the feedback I provided! What do you think about Dia & Co.?
