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.

Kristin has been my stylist for the last few boxes. I think she’s getting to understand my style as the last few boxes have been pretty good. Let’s see if the streak is still on.

Screenshot_2016-03-07-23-34-29These 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.

February’s Dia & Co. box. I love the stripe pattern on the dress. It’s perfect for summer!

Jaya Skirt – Gray | Junarose ($69.00): This is a stretchy jersey knit faux wrap skirt with a knot/bow detail on the side. I like the idea of this skirt, but I wasn’t as happy with the look when worn. This definitely requires some slimming undergarments because every little bump shows through.

Here’s a close up of the detail at the waistband.

Ashlyn Ankle Pant – Navy | Eloquii ($84.90): I love a good navy pant and was excited to try this pair on. These were nice but a little wide in the hips. Also, I’m sort of tired of the ankle pant trend. Please go back to full-length trousers.

Daina Dress – Navy/Ivory | Taylor ($89.00): This was absolutely my favorite item this month. I love the linear graphic print and the navy/ivory combination. This sheath is great at accentuating all of my positive curves and hiding some flaws. This dress is perfect for work or a night out and needs minimal accessories.

Bunty Woven Kaftan – Red | B. Curvy ($75.00): This did not fit my definition of a kaftan, maybe a tunic, but not a kaftan. It also is not red. The pattern was interesting, but I felt it was a bit aging on me. I liked that the top was lightweight and the cut was flattering.

Here’s a closer look at the pattern. As you can see it contains pinks, oranges, and navy.

Josie Top – Teal | Curve by Dora Landa ($54.00): I received a similar style Curve top in last month’s box. This is more blue than last month’s top. I loved this shirt but wasn’t sure why this came a full size bigger than my normal size. It is polyester and works well as a transitional piece. It is also very office appropriate and can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion.

Here’s what everything looks like on me.

The Curve top and Junarose skirt. I liked this look for the office. However, I didn’t like how clingy the skirt fit. It was a lot of work to hide the hem of the top – if you look at the back, there is a visible line across my rear.

LOVE this Taylor dress. I think I may wear this with some red accessories.

Hmm, questioning this look. I’ve paired the Eloquii pants with the B. Curvy top. As I mentioned, the pants were a little wider than I would have liked. I think they made my legs look short. Comments from my family were that I looked like my mother in this outfit. LOL

This Dia & Co. box didn’t score a homerun, but it wasn’t terrible. I ended up keeping the teal top and, of course, the dress. Now that we are coming out of winter, I’ve asked for more transitional pieces and some blazers (I finally got into the trend. Better late than never, right?) Remember, Dia & Co. does price match, so if you find something cheaper, let them know!
