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 5 items 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 5 items 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 2020 Review
That Dia & Co envelope I look forward to seeing every month now comes as a sleeve so you can pull out the message and attached invoice. Wild! Looks rather chic, I must say! Also included is the free return shipping envelope as well.
Enclosed is another awesome message from my stylist, Kristin S.! She provided a few styling tips, but also gave me handy info on options for outfit bundles, daily steals, and to check out the new arrivals on the Dia & Co site as well!
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, so this form is a bit inaccurate. The total would be $304. After the $20 styling fee and 25% is applied my balance for the entire box would be $213! The savings would be $91 if I did decide to keep everything! That savings almost covers the cost for the Cameo & Meri Skye tops -- that isn’t too shabby!
Kehlani Hoodie by Rainbeau Curves, Size 2x — Retail Value $75.00
Since this pandemic began, I realized other than my Fabletics pieces I review, I don't have a ton of loungewear. Hoodies used to be a go-to back in high school and college for me. I had a black one I wore all the time that was incredibly fitted and was covered by 1 inch buttons I collected at shows. It was kind of like a makeshift armor on that one side! That hoodie is long gone (I think it disintegrated and went POOF from wearing it so much), so I figured the pushing forty me needed a brand new one!
I am definitely not disappointed with my decision. This hoodie has loads of stretch and fits like a glove. It is not a fleece/ sweatshirt material, but more like a knit cotton and spandex blend. This will make the hoodie ideal for layering. I also love it if I decide to take a brisk walk. It would keep me warm enough without overheating me while walking up and down a bunch of hills. Plus, this is perfect just for running errands in too. The kangaroo pockets are usable too-- I can't be the only one that hates when clothing has faux pocket details. Pair this hoodie with your favorite leggings and shirt or make a short t-shirt dress a bit more comfy and cozy by styling it with this vital piece.
Chantal Three- Quarter Sleeve Top by Cameo, Size 2x— Listed Value $55.00
My stylist, Kristin, is aware of my ongoing hunt for new loungewear as well. I work from home for both of my jobs these days, so a lot of my dressier and business casual pieces are collecting dust. I live in leggings, sweats, t-shirts, sweaters, and caftans these days. I was pleased that Kristin sent me a nice staple piece like this top, but I noticed this isn't your basic grey top. It has flecks of metallic string in the knit-- it has this subtle shine to it that my camera on my phone can't capture well. It also has a high low cut which I greatly appreciate. I love that the back is a bit longer to ensure my posterior and back are fully covered. The top is extremely well made, has ample stretch, and is rather easy to wear! I opted to style the top with the FILA leggings that Kristin sent for me (I actually styled every piece this month with the leggings-- pretty cool if you ask me!). This top would look great too if you decide to leave the house in black tights, skirt, booties, and faux leather biker jacket for a tough, yet chic and classic look!
Vanessa Long Sleeve Top by Meri Skye in Light/Grey Mauve, Size 2x — Listed Value $55.00
I must admit that when I initially saw this top I was very skeptical. It is not something I would typically select for myself. I am not a big fan of tie-dye items, but I have found myself growing a collection of more during this pandemic. My latest Fabletics review is a prime example of this as well!
Let me tell you-- I love this top. It is almost like a stretchy flannel material? It is soft, cozy, but you aren't roasting in it either! The elastic detail at the bottom hem really helps define my waist. I even love the V-shaped tie-dye detail-- listen, I am stunned myself. I have been wearing this top a lot lately-- it is just so comfortable! I adore it styled with the FILA leggings (also included in this month's box), pink animal print earrings, and white studded mules for a laidback, yet stylish ensemble! This could easily be paired with denim shorts or a skirt and white sneakers in the spring as well-- perfect outfit to wear while running errands.
Megan Sweater by Belldini in White/Black , Size 2x — Retail Value $59.00
If this isn't your first rodeo with my reviews/antics, you are then fully aware of my innate love for all that is animal print. Leopard, tiger, zebra print... hand it over to me! My love is so strong, I am even on the hunt for a leopard print sectional sofa-- I don't play around! That all being said, it is no surprise that I had to select this sweater for this month's box! This truly reminds me of something my mama would have worn in the 80s-- probably with a matching skirt. My mom is all for coordinating her pieces perfectly and cannot resist black and white pieces. This sweater is an acrylic and nylon blend, but I was convinced it was an angora blend due to the fuzzy quality. I decided to stick with black and white items to style with this top including black and white Mod statement earrings, white booties, and black leggings. This would also look phenomenal styled with a faux leather mini skirt, booties, or simply with jeans and sneakers for a stylish, but comfortable outfit!
Street high-Rise Shine Leggings by FILA, Size 3x — Retail Value $60.00
When I saw that FILA was doing a collaboration with Dia & Co, I had to immediately check it out! I almost selected these leggings to review last month, but knew I had to choose them this go around for sure! I am so glad that I did. FILA was such a popular brand when I was growing up in the 90s. I remember having a pair of suede oxfords by them that I wore with everything from a t-shirt and slip dress outfit to the classic sweater and jeans combo. I am glad to own another FILA item-- especially these well-made leggings! These fit like a dream, they are perfectly high-waisted-- my tummy and dupa are both fully covered. Whether I am wearing them while working out or getting eggs at the store-- I will feel at ease! I love the sleek shine of the spandex like material as well; it really elevates the leggings to a level of glamour! The price point is reasonable considering how versatile these pants are too-- I managed to style them four different ways in this review alone! My only complaint is that their logo is on the back, but that can be easily covered if you don't tuck in your t-shirt or blouse.
Verdict: This month's Dia & Co was probably one of my favorite I received this year! My choices meshed perfectly with my stylist, Kristin's, picks. I am excited to expand my wardrobe with more casual pieces that still retain some of the glitz I love! I love every single piece I received this month, but the FILA leggings, Belldini sweater, and Meri Skye tie-dye top are my favorite of the bunch. I would have never selected the latter for myself, but I legitimately have worn it several times since I got it! Truly, the best thing Dia & Co started offering was the ability to select three of the five items in their monthly subscription box. I am a scavenger and a shopper by nature. I live for finding a good deal or the perfect gift for a loved one. I also love being surprised by others, so collaborating with Kristin is the best of both worlds! I also try to help Kristin by leaving feedback on each month's boxes, going through the site, and favoriting/ "heart-ing" items I like, and sharing my Pinterest/ Instagram info as well. It helps build a rapport, understanding, and a true partnership with your stylist. If the subscription box isn't your thing-- that's okay! You can shop and buy items outright from the site without getting the subscription box if that is your preference! Having options is a beautiful thing, am I right?
I have been reviewing Dia & Co since 2017 when I started with MSA and I am so pleased to see the directions they have gone into to continue improving their service. They have been one of my favorite boxes to review over the years and remain a comfort during the pandemic. I avoid the malls these days, so having killer pieces sent directly to my doorstep monthly is a total pick me up!
I loved everything in my November box-- are you as eager as me to see what I get in December?
