Dia & Co. is a monthly personal styling subscription for plus-sized women. It’s like Stitch Fix, but for plus sizes. Fill out your profile and sizing information, pay a $20 styling fee (refundable against anything you choose to keep), and have 5 items selected by a stylist sent straight to your home to try on. Dia & Co. includes free shipping each way. If you keep all 5 items from your box, you’ll receive a 20% discount.
Dia & Co. have combined the invoice and stylist’s note onto one one sheet. The invoice shows the price of each item plus my potential discount if I opt to keep all of the pieces. I forgot to show my stylist’s letter, but I’m working with Kristin again.
These are the looks that I told my stylist I wear or like via my fashion profile. I made it a point to emphasize that although I work in an office, I spend a lot of my work day outdoors and live in Florida where it is VERY humid, so I need clothes that are climate friendly and easy care. For this box, I requested some fall transition pieces that are office friendly.
My full January Dia & Co. box.
Cayla Necklace – Gold ($29.00): If you’ve read my reviews before, you know that I like long statement necklaces. In this above picture, the chain is doubled on the stand. This necklace features a pendant made from wired crystal beads on an extra long chain with beads at set intervals. The necklace was in line with my style, but I felt like I had a mini NYE ball on when I wore this.
A close-up of the pendant. I love how the crystal beads catch the light.
Marianna Dress – Black | Eloquii ($99.90): This is jersey knit faux-wrap dress. My first thought when I saw this was, “what were they thinking???” The cheetah/camouflage print threw me for a loop. Even though I couldn’t see myself in the print, the dress was super flattering. The cut and fabric draped nicely, covering most of my flaws. In a different pattern, I would have kept this.
Drawstring Cardigan – Burgundy | KIYONNA ($58.00): This burgundy cardigan is the perfect weight for winter in Florida. I loved the deep jewel tone, and the fit was fairly spot-on. I sent this back for two reasons – 1) I felt this was overpriced for a simple knit cardigan and 2) the gather from the drawstring hit at a weird spot near my bust-line. I wanted this to work so badly, but it wasn’t meant to be.
Esmay Solid V-Neck Blouse – Black | Michel Studio ($68.00): I absolutely love this top! You can rarely go wrong with black. The ruffles give this top an extra dose of femininity and romance. This can be dressed up for the office or downplayed for a casual night out. The lightweight chiffon is also great for layering.
The Bootcut Jean – Dark Indigo | Fashion to Figure ($38.90): I’ve gotten a few pairs of skinny jeans and jeggings in recent months, so seeing a bootcut was nice. Personally, I prefer a dark rinse. So, that combined with the cut made these an easy “keep” choice. Even better was the fit. I only wish that they would have given me a little more lift in the rear, but they’re jeans not miracle makers. LOL
Here’s what everything looks like on me.
Here’s the Marianna dress from Eloquii. I loved the fit and think the dress made me look taller. The pattern didn’t look bad on, but I still couldn’t get past it.
Here’s the Kiyonna Bellini cardigan. I was really happy with the cut and color of this piece. I just wished that the gather was a little bit lower so that it didn’t hit across my bust.
I paired the Michel Studio top with the Fashion to Figure jeans for a casual look. The outfit is completed with a pair of ankle boots and my Lily. She kept pacing back and forth trying to figure out what I was up to. So, I decided to include her in the activity.
The selections in this Dia & Co. box weren’t bad, but I only ended up keeping half the items. I think Kristin is looking in the right direction, so I’ve got high hopes for the next box. I did try to do some price investigations, but couldn’t find lower retails. Remember, Dia & Co. does price match, so if you find something cheaper, let them know!
