2.5 overall rating
74 Ratings | 23 Reviews

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 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 five 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!

This box was sent to us at no cost for review. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

Dia & Co February 2021 Review

 

That Dia & Co envelope I look forward to seeing every month now comes as a sleeve. Enclosed is another awesome message from my stylist, Kristin S.! She complimented the three pieces that I selected this month and gave some fantastic styling tips too! Also included is the free return shipping envelope and 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 $302. After the $20 styling fee and 25% is applied my balance for the entire box would be $206.50! The savings would be $95.50 if I did decide to keep everything! That savings would be like getting the high-waisted jeans for free  — that’s pretty fantastic!

Now for the fashions!

 

Mira Tie-Neck Blouse by Downing Studio, Size 2x– Listed Value  $39.00

I have always been a sucker for leopard, tiger, and cheetah prints, but in recent years snake prints have grown on me as well! I had put this top in my favorites and my stylist, Kristin S. sent it to me this month! The top fits but I am curious if a 3x would have been a slight bit better, at least in the armholes? Everywhere else, it fits splendidly! The fabric has limited stretch and is like a silky and shiny nylon-like material. This top looks fantastic paired with the black jeans Kristen also selected for me, but imagine this with black faux leather mini skirt and booties for a night out on the town look!

 

Yasmin High-Waisted Ankle Jean by Kut from the Kloth, Size 22 — Listed Value $89.00,

I am very particular with jeans, emphasis on VERY. For example, I only wear deep dark blue indigo or black rinses, I prefer skinny style, and they must have a high waist due to my belly and my bum! I have been on this Earth for close to forty years and I have tried every kind of jean style under the sun, so I am certain at this juncture I know what I prefer and what looks and feels best on my body. Another thing I dislike on jeans is distressed or ripped details. I am paying good money for jeans and don’t want them torn to pieces. I lived through acid-washed and slashed jeans of the 90s, I am good! I was a little concerned about these due to the undone ankle hem, but I absolutely love these jeans! They are not too thick or thin and have ample stretch. Plus, most importantly, they are a true high waist— neither my front nor behind are hanging out and are supported!  These jeans are so versatile and I know I will get a ton of wear from them all year long.

 

Quella Crew Neck Pullover by MARC NY, Size 2x— Listed Value $64.00

My stylist selected this for me and I am sure it was due to the snake-like print, but I am not a fan. It has loads of stretch, but I would have preferred a size up in a 3x for a baggier fit. In addition, the snake print is so muted in shades of lilac and grey that you can barely see the pattern. However, this could be a great top to wear on cold morning walks. I definitely prefer this style tucked in as well and would wear it with palazzo pants or an A-line skirt and lavender flats.

 

Vita Turtleneck in Pink by Molly&Isadora, Size 3x — Listed Value $45.00, On Sale for $27.00

I am always on the hunt for a cute, yet cozy sweater and this one from Molly&Isadora fit the bill. I was attracted to the perfect bubble gum pink immediately and had to give it a try! The sweater has ample stretch, but I opted to size up to a 3x to ensure it fit my changing body. I wanted to ensure it had plenty of room no matter my size. I did some simple styling by pairing this cutie with the black Kut from Kloth jeans that Kristin included as well as black flats and Mod black and white flower power earrings from the Ziggy Pop Shop!

 

I wanted to show this piece styled completely differently as well. In retrospect, I look like the love child of an Easter egg and Sadness from the movie, Inside Out, but I ain’t mad about it in the least! Bright and vivid colors really make me happy, so this styling made me giddy! I layered the sweater over top of a striped t-shirt mini-dress and added yellow Vans sneakers, purple Rx glasses from Wherelight.com, and my fave egg earrings from Wild Planet Vintage! I love getting a bunch of looks from one piece, don’t you?

 

Olia Tie Front Dress by London Times, Size 3x — Retail Value $65.00

Last, but certainly not least, we have this dreamy dress from London Times. I picked it out immediately because the orange and pink together screamed springtime to me! This dress has a high-low bottom hem which ensures my behind is covered, but you get to see my cute shoes and legs! The material is rather light, sheer, and flowy, but has an underlayer to ensure coverage. If I were still in the office, I would certainly wear this to work or to a warm-weather outdoor wedding. I wanted to make the pink in the dress pop, so I styled it with Kiki pink wedges from B.A.I.T footwear and earrings from Gloss & Shimmer. This could translate into fall with a faux leather biker jacket, black fishnets, and Bad Sandy from Grease wooden platforms.

 

Verdict: This month’s Dia & Co had a little bit of everything from sweaters to dresses to jeans, this box had me covered! My far and away favorite is the London Times dress– can you blame me? I can’t wait to wear that on a summer date with my boyfriend.  I also loved the jeans my stylist, Kristin S., selected for me. They are so comfortable and on point! My stylist has a gauge of my likes and dislikes since we have been collaborating for some time, but also due to the feedback I provide her. Whether it be my Pinterest, IG, or simply sending her links for items on the Dia & Co site– we have a great working relationship. I do love the fact that Dia & Co allows you to select up to three of the items in your monthly box, though. I am such a shopping fiend (my entire house is essentially my closet). Even though I am fully vaccinated, I still limit going to the mall. I went recently and it was so surreal! The beauty of a service like Dia & Co is they bring new items directly to your doorstep. No worrying about getting your masks and sanitizers ready and hopping in your car– you can try everything on right from your own home! Not only can I have clothes sent to me, but Dia & Co also offers styling box services for activewear and now intimate pieces– and you can also purchase items from the site directly as well! Yes, you can shop and buy items outright from the site without getting the subscription box if that is your preference! I love a variety of choices and Dia & Co certainly delivers on so many personalized options! I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait to see what I get in my next box!

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? Dia & Co curates its boxes based on each individual’s preferences as well as what’s available. What you get might not be the same as what I got, but you also might get something that fits your style and body even better than the looks above! Sign up and see what they choose for you! Also, take advantage of their option for you to pin pieces and select up to three items for your monthly box as well!

Value Breakdown: This box has a $20 styling fee and includes free shipping and returns. The total retail value of the items inside is $302. The cost of each item is listed alongside it above, but if I choose to keep at least 5 items, I get a 25% discount. The $20 styling fee for the box would also be applied to the purchase, meaning I’d end up spending $206.50 for the whole box. Ultimately, that is roughly a 32% discount.
