Dia & Co. Clothing Subscription Box Review – October 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 always adorable and stylish Dia & Co envelope that I look forward to every month!
Enclosed in this cute envelope is a note from my stylist, Natalie, telling me why she selected the pieces she did for me along with some awesome styling tips.
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 $114 if I did decide to keep everything! You can’t beat that price. That amount in savings is like getting the purse and striped blouse for free!
Luna Striped Woven Blouse by Dex Plus, Size 3x — Cost to Keep $69
This top immediately makes me think of Blondie’s Parallel Lines album cover. It makes me nostalgic for the many Thursdays in my early twenties that I spent dancing to the Smiths at 80s night with my friends. I really love the details on the chest pockets and the buttoned rolled up sleeves. Button downs can be a drag for an ample busted, bodacious babe such as myself, but there was no gapping on this blouse! Hallelujah! I also liked that the shirt was a bit loose on me. The woven material doesn’t have a lot of stretch, but you don’t need it due to the style and cut of this top. I paired my prized ASOS Curve Disco pants and B.A.I.T gold go-go booties with this top to complete the New Wave vibe. I could also see this styled amazingly with jeans and pointy-toed flats or tucked into a red pencil skirt with fishnets and booties. Ooh, la la!
Cellebes Velvet Bag by Urban Expressions – Cost to Keep $35
Have I mentioned that I am a bit obsessed with velvet these days? I am a total sucker for this velvet trend and I am making this purse mine! This black crushed velvet purse harkens back to 90’s grunge style; imagine Courtney Love in her baby doll dresses and Mary Jane heels. The stitching and gold chain link strap details add sophistication to this piece. This would pair well with a cute LBD with leopard platforms and a leather biker jacket or amp up a casual outfit of jeans and a vintage t-shirt easily. This purse’s versatility makes it an awesome find and a great value.
Sophia Flutter Sleeve Knit Tee in Navy by B.Curvy, Size 3x — Cost to Keep $85
YES! MORE VELVET! This rich navy, crushed velvet, bell-sleeved top is perfect for all your witchy October looks. The fabric of this top is rather comfortable and has ample stretch. The length is a bit long, but that can be fixed by tucking the top into one’s bottoms or belting it like I did. This top would look amazing with a mini skirt and patterned tights and booties. I opted to style this gorgeous top with a floppy hat, my go-to western belt from eBay, Torrid Bad Sandy heels, a necklace from my last Jewelry Subscription review, and pants that were also included in this month’s box.
Stockholm Sueded Skinny Jeans by Slink Jeans in Charcoal Grey, Size 24 – Cost to Keep $98
Slink Jeans are designed specifically for curvy women— and it really shows. Their fit is phenomenal. I have received Slink brand jeans in many of my subscription boxes before and they never disappoint. This pair is unique due to the soft suede-like fabric they are made from. The pants have some stretch and embrace every curve of one’s body amazingly well. I generally prefer skinny leg styles to boot cut, but there are exceptions to every rule. These pants are very flattering on and would pair well with everything from a vintage band shirt and boots to a button-down blouse and heels in the workplace.
Cassie Sweetheart Dress by Leota for Dia & Co, Size 3x — Cost to Keep $89
When I first saw this dress I was slightly bummed by the color scheme since it is so summery. That isn’t to say I didn’t like it, but I am in an Autumn state of mind and long for deep jewel tones and rusts. I did pep up when I realized this was a Leota dress. I became familiar with Leota a few months ago through my first review for MSA! Leota makes flatteringly body-conscious dresses that have a Joan Holloway from Mad Men quality to them. The fabric of this dress has ample stretch and fits like a glove. I opted to style it with my trusty faux leather biker jacket, Bad Sandy heels, and a Leota fan that was in my swag bag from Curvy Con. I couldn’t resist using that as a prop for these photos, but can you really blame me? This dress would also look great styled with a cardigan and flats for a more low key office look.
Verdict: This month’s Dia & Co box was filled with some fantastic pieces, but it didn’t wow me like last month’s box. I adored the striped top and both crushed velvet pieces that Natalie selected for me, but I was kind of taken aback by the Leota dress being included. It was gorgeous but felt slightly out of place with the rest of the pieces. I requested too in my last month’s feedback that pieces from the Dia & Co fashion show at Curvy Con be included in my box, but they weren’t sadly. There is always next time, right? That all being said, I did enjoy this month’s picks and am excited to see what Natalie sends me next month. Dia & Co remains one of my favorite boxes to get because it brings the mall to your doorstep. This is only improved by the pieces exclusively made for Dia & Co! That $20 styling fee is well worth it for such a personalized and convenient service.
