Dia & Co. Subscription Box Review – November 2018
Dia & Co is a monthly plus size clothing subscription box that is personally curated for you by a Dia stylist. Upon enrolling with Dia & Co, 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 chose 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!

Dia & Co. November 2018 Review
Here is that adorable Dia & Co envelope I look forward to seeing every month!
Also enclosed is this sweet message from my stylist, Ashby! She knows I love retro and vintage style pieces and certainly kept that in mind with this month’s selections; her note being evidence of that as well! I appreciate the thoughtfulness also with her styling tips—what a sweet and helpful note!
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. My prices aren’t listed but the total would be $273. After the $20 styling fee and 25% is applied my balance for the entire box would be $189.75! The savings would be $83.25 if I did decide to keep everything! That isn’t too shabby! That would be like getting Rawan jeans for free!
Loquat Short Flare Sleeve Shift Dress by Sabrina Blue, Size 2x — Retail Value $49
Fall is here and this dress doesn’t just give Thanksgiving vibes, but to quote Trixie Mattel it will give you THANKSLIVING vibes! This retro style piece has an autumnal color palette of browns, tans, and oranges. The plaid print is classic and the ruffle detail at the sleeves add a sassy touch to this cute dress. The fabric is soft and stretchy; very comfortable to wear. I styled this number with an oversized rust cardigan and mustard yellow mules to bring out and compliment the tones in the fabric.
Mars Mock Neck Top with Asymmetrical Hem in Forrest Green by Rafaella, Size 2x — Retail Value $58
I absolutely love a good mock neck piece and have been looking for sweater styles; did you read my mind, Ashby? The deep olive green color of this is a great alternative to wearing head to toe black. I especially like how it enhances my orange red hair. The neck on the mock has a studding detail that makes an otherwise plain piece a bit more rock’n’roll! I am usually anti-asymmetrical cuts, but this style works well for this top. This knit is like a thin sweater, so it provides comfort and warmth, but can also easily be tucked in to pants and not look bulky. This sweater is definitely going to become a staple in my cold weather wardrobe! I styled this piece with Western style boots from Target, Rawan jeans also included in this month’s box, and a necklace from Jewelry Subscription box (review coming soon!).
Bennett Moto Detail Skinny Jean by RWN by Rawan Size 22—Retail Value $72
I have reviewed quite a few pairs of Rawan brand jeans from Dia & Co, but these may be my favorite of all! The black jeans have ample stretch and fit like a dream! I wasn’t sure how I would feel about the line details on the thigh, but I actually adore this addition to an otherwise basic pair of black skinny jeans. Plus, I love the tapered leg and high waist–these hit me just right! Here I show how the sweater Ashby sent looks tucked into these jeans and give an alternate look simply by changing my necklace to a Scorpion bolo tie and a large brimmed hat. I am feeling like Dolly Parton and Stevie Nick’s love child in this ensemble!
Areca Poncho by Junarose O/S—Retail Value $65
I usually don’t find myself drawn to ponchos, but this ultra-retro 70s style has won me over! This piece is so toasty, but absolutely stunning. The rose detail and the gorgeous coral and reds— fabulous! It looks phenomenal paired with the mock turtleneck top and jeans Ashby sent me, but I can envision wearing it with a red dress, black tights, and booties with my western double buckle belt for a dressier look. The other awesome thing about this poncho is that it is reversible.
I prefer the first styling option, but that doesn’t negate how cool this poncho looks both ways. I would just suggest gently cutting off the tags if you do wear it the other way. Either way you slice it, this is a killer piece that is immensely versatile!
Cambridge Clutch—Retail Value $29
This burgundy, patchwork, and faux leather clutch is awesome! I have reviewed similar clutches in past Dia & Co reviews that have this envelope style. I appreciate how much roomy storage this piece provides and also that it is convertible and can be styled with or without the chain strap. This clutch looked great paired with all the pieces included this month, but I know I will get tons of wear from it with other ensembles as well!
Verdict: My stylist, Ashby, has sent me yet another thoughtful box of selections! She really pays attention to my feedback and my Instagram account for inspiration—it is truly evident in what she sends me. I loved all of the selections this month, but those RWN by Rawan black moto detail jeans may be my favorite! They are so comfortable, fit like a dream, and enhance everything from a sweater, crop top, or vintage band shirt! I am in love! I am a busy lady, so having a subscription box like Dia & Co is so helpful! I love that I can get great pieces I can wear in and out of the office straight to my door without me having to hit up any malls or online shops!
