Dia & Co. Clothing Subscription Box Review – Spring Separates
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 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!
We received this box for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

Dia & Co. Review
Here is that adorable Dia & Co envelope I look forward to seeing every month!
Also enclosed is this darling message from this month’s stylist, Sydney. She really paid great attention to what I pinned on the Dia & Co site! Did you know you can select up to THREE PIECES for yourself and let your stylist pick the rest now? Such an awesome option, but you can also pin pieces you like on the Dia & Co page to give your stylist an idea of what you like. Sydney also referenced my Pinterest which I truly appreciate!
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 $334.50. After the $20 styling fee and 25% is applied my balance for the entire box would be $235.88! The savings would be $98.62 if I did decide to keep everything! That isn’t too shabby! That would be like getting the Donna Morgan shirt dress for free! What a deal!
Ivey Shirt Dress by Donna Morgan, Size 20 – Retail Value $85
Spring is here and this dress will be screaming it from the rooftops! Sydney remarked how she sent this piece due to the retro pattern and I can see why. In my college years, I was obsessed with cherries. I literally had earrings, hairpins, purses, tops, dresses, wallets, etc covered in cherry designs. You name it, I had it! This dress has a very Americana/Pin Up vibe that harkens back to that era in my life for sure! I know I will be wearing this at the office or any picnic I am invited to. I paired the dress with my favorite mustard mules, but I can see wearing this with an adorable red open toe platform and a cute sun hat in warmer weather. The material has a bit of stretch, but the cut is incredibly complementary to a variety of bodies which is why this is such a beautiful piece!
Leah Bomber Jacket by East Adeline, Size 2x – Retail Value $59
What a great, lightweight jacket for the springtime! I was not into the cobalt blue initially and typically select jackets with a collar, but this bomber style is growing on me. The fabric is a great lightweight material making it an ideal transition piece from spring to summer. It looks so gorgeous paired with the denim dress Sydney sent me. I styled it with my mustard mules again because it makes the retro flower print pop! I can envision wearing this with a black and white striped t-shirt dress and KEDS for a casual, yet super cute warm weather outfit!
Judson Front Zip Dress by Dex Plus, Size 2x – Retail Value $79
Guys, this by far is my favorite piece Sydney sent me! It is so dreamy! I have a denim dress I reviewed by Rebel Wilson X Angel for Trunk Club almost a year ago, but one can never have too many denim dresses as far as I am concerned. Plus, this one is very different from the Rebel Wilson dress I own. It has a sweetheart neckline style and adorable pocket detail. The white stitching makes it stand out along with the front zipper detail. This piece has incredible stretch as well and is super comfortable. I also like that it is shorter, it gives it a real va-va voom quality that I am for! I could wear this with a top underneath for layering at work or just by itself for a killer date look! I want my boyfriend to take me to a summer carnival in this number! I am ready!
Phillips Short Sleeve Graphic Tee by Molly&Isadora, Size 2x – Retail Value $42
I hate to say, but this might be my least favorite item in this month’s selections. The shirt itself is super soft and well made, especially for a t-shirt. It has a nice stretch and fits the body well. The print is not my favorite. I love hearts, but I am just not super keen on the design. That being said, I did like it a bit more after styling it with the awesome black jeans my stylist selected for me along with a red faux leather biker jacket and my go-to white studded mules. This is a casual outfit with a little edge, which is me all the way! Wear this top with a black mini skirt, your favorite jean jacket, and some low top Chuck Taylors for a comfortable, yet romantic look on a spring evening.
Garnet Skinny Jeans by Garnet, Size 22 – Retail Value $69.50
These jeans are amazing! If you follow my reviews, you know that skinny jeans are my pants of choice. I am not keen on wide legs, they give me a lack of definition and make my 5’6 frame (technically 5’5 and ½… but we round up, am I right?) look shorter than needed! Skinny leg jeans with a high waist make me foxy, so I hope they never go away! These pants have a great stretch and are so easy to wear. I can wear these to work and to see a show at my favorite watering hole after if I like! The versatility and quality of these jeans make the $69.50 price tag immensely reasonable. Wear these with your favorite t-shirt or in warmer weather with a sleeveless mock turtleneck tank and heels.
Verdict: This month’s Dia & Co was a nice departure from office appropriate wear to some casual, fun items. My favorite piece by far was the denim dress by Dex Plus! I am in love! It is a piece I will be able to wear in a variety of ways, plus it is the perfect level of cute meets sexy. The Kensie jeans and Donna Morgan dress are my next favorite pieces selected for me. The cherry print dress is one I will get a lot of wear from in the spring and summer months as well. Just make sure to invite me to your next summer block party, I will bring a cherry pie in this number! I must say, I truly appreciate how Dia & Co have improved the options on feedback through their site. Allowing their customers to select three pieces to be sent to them is absolutely genius! I love the element of surprise, but I also like being able to pick a few of my dream pieces out as well! It is a great option that I encourage all subscribers to take advantage of! I also greatly value my stylist, Sydney, taking the time out to read my feedback and check out my Pinterest and Instagram to truly tailor the box to me! I am very pleased with the Dia & Co experience and I think you guys will be too!
