Dia & Co Subscription Box Review + Coupon – October 2019
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 25% 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 October 2019 Review
Here is that adorable Dia & Co envelope I look forward to seeing every month!
Also enclosed is this thoughtful message from my stylist, Patrice! Patrice mentions in her note that she appreciated me including my Pinterest page. I always try to pass it along in my feedback each month– so glad it came in handy this month! She also gives me some fantastic styling tips that I always enjoy! Thanks, Patrice!
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 some of my prices are listed and some aren’t, so this form is a bit inaccurate. The total would be $317. After the $20 styling fee and 25% is applied my balance for the entire box would be $222.75! The savings would be $94.25 if I did decide to keep everything! That isn’t too shabby! That would be like getting the Kensie jacket for free and the Molly&Isadora jeans for half off. What a deal!
Kassia Jacket with Sherpa Collar by Kensie, Size 2x — Retail Value $65
I have been wanting to get a denim sherpa-lined jacket for some time– so this piece was a must! Though this jacket is not fully lined, I love the sherpa collar detail. The denim is thick and certainly keeps me warm. The fit is fantastic too– not too big, but not too snug either. I can easily wear it with a bulky sweater. It truly is an ideal fall weather jacket. I also love that there are external AND internal pockets on BOTH SIDES! The inside pockets are so big I was able to fit a can of seltzer and my cell phone in one with room to spare. Brilliant! I opted to style this jacket with the Leota top and Molly&Isadora burgundy jeans for a fantastic fall look. Top it all off with some western booties and you are set! I can also imagine this piece paired with your favorite plaid western button down and dark denim jeans or an autumnal sweater dress and booties! Wear this jacket to the pumpkin patch and beyond– it is that versatile!
Tobi Bowtie Top by Leota, Size 2x — Retail Value $55
If this top looks somewhat familiar, it is because my stylist, Patrice, actually sent me the same style blouse with a different print in my June 2019 Dia & Co review! I love it! Both blouses are made by one of my favorite brands, Leota, so it fits like an absolute dream. The top has just enough stretch and I love the romantic floral print in gorgeous reds and pinks. Plus, hello– I love the retro look of a pussybow tie! I decided to style this top with the jeans I received in this month’s box, but I can imagine this paired with a black pencil skirt, black pointy-toe flats, and a blazer at the office. Just add bangles and dangly earrings for added flair!
Leroy Ankle Skinny Jeans by Molly&Isadora, Size 22 — Retail Value $65
Initially, when I was selecting my three items for this month’s box (isn’t that the coolest feature? I know I love it!), I wanted to grab the yellow version of these Leroy ankle jeans. Then I remembered how much of slob I am; I will either drop or sit in food. It’s Murphy’s Law when it comes to food and clothing for me. My second choice was the burgundy version of the jeans. I love the color; it is such a deep oxblood red. The jeans fit incredibly well with loads of stretch and the perfect body-hugging cut. The only thing that might improve them for me is if they were slightly more high waisted. I love a mom jean high waist guys, what can I say? Otherwise, these are fantastic! I know I will get a ton of wear from these all year too. They look great with the Leota top and Kensie jacket, but I have several outfit ideas for the jeans. I can imagine these with a button-down blouse layered with a sweater and saddle shoes at work or with my favorite band T-shirt, faux-leather biker jacket, and Vans sneakers for a more casual look. These will certainly become a staple in my wardrobe and possibly yours if you sign up for Dia & Co too!
Senna Cap Sleeve Fit and Flare Dress by Sabrina Collective, Size 20 — Retail Value $69
This is the third piece I picked out for myself in this month’s box. I was immediately taken by the dress’s retro style and the gorgeous pops of blues, olive green, and citron. I love the neckline with the peekaboo bow opening detail. The fabric is light enough it can be worn all year long. Wear this in the summer with flats and your favorite cat-eye sunglasses for a chic look. In colder weather, you can easily winterize this dress with a cardigan, tights, and chunky platform heels. I opted to pair this dress with flats and my favorite olive green translucent cat eyeglasses from Zenni Optical. This can easily be worn at the office or for a night on the town. I can’t wait to wear it on a tiki bar date with my boyfriend this weekend myself! This dress also comes in a red and purple version that is equally stunning!
Amaryllis Pencil Midi Skirt by Dex Plus in Navy, Size 2x — Retail Value $49
You really cannot go wrong with a solid colored pencil skirt. My stylist, Patrice, knows that and sent me this cute navy one by Dex Plus. The fabric has just the right amount of stretch and is rather fitted. I am not shy about showing off my VBO (visible belly outline), but the one negative is with my shirt tucked in you can see the line on the front a bit and the back. The beauty of this piece, though, is its adaptability. I choose to style it in a more casual manner with a red faux-leather biker jacket, leopard print and black creepers, a Rat Fink T-shirt, dice earrings, and my new fave Firmoo glasses. This is a great look for casual Friday or to wear out with friends to see a band play. Just imagine this skirt paired with a striped sweater and booties or a cute pussybow blouse and heels for the office. The number of looks you will get with this wardrobe staple is infinite!
Verdict: Man, do I love Dia & Co! This month’s box had so many good pieces! I know I will sound like a broken record, but the best change Dia & Co made was allowing their subscribers to select three or the five pieces they receive in their monthly box! I love to scavenge and shop– I get a thrill from the hunt! I also have very particular tastes, so being able to pick out a few pieces for myself is a big plus. I also love allowing my stylist to surprise me, too, with pieces they picked out specifically with me in mind! I make sure to pin items on the Dia & Co site, send my Pinterest link, and provide positive and negative feedback each month to ensure my stylist knows what I liked and disliked about my previous box. It helps my stylist to assemble the best-tailored box she can! With the temperatures dropping I asked Patrice to include some cozy sweaters for next month. I can’t wait to see what she picks out for me in my November box!
