My First Dia & Co. Box Review
This is a sponsored post and includes items that I received for free in exchange for promotion and a review. This post also includes affiliate links. Read my disclaimer here.
The newest, hottest trend in shopping these days is subscription boxes and I've wanted to try Dia & Co. for so long! I was glad that I able to receive a free box in exchange for a review and I'm really happy with the products I've received.
What is Dia & Co?
Dia & Co is exclusively dedicated to serving women who wear sizes 14 and up.
How does it work?
First, you’ll fill out a style quiz then you’ll be connected with one of their amazing stylists and delivered hand-picked pieces based on your preferences.
There’s a $20 styling fee for each box, which is then applied to anything you purchase and the $20 styling fee cannot be rolled over to your next box. You have five days to try the items on in the comfort of your home, then you can keep what you love and send back what you don't! They only charge you for the items you keep. Dia & Co always covers shipping both ways, and you can cancel or pause your Dia Plan at any time.
The items you receive through Dia & Co are new and from the racks of the latest season. They are not secondhand—and they are for purchase, not rental. Their at-home try-on process is designed to be more convenient than trying on items in a store. Before sending any returned pieces out to other customers, they always perform a quality check to ensure they’re still in excellent condition.
Without further ado, here's my first Dia & Co. box review!
When I opened the box, I was pleasantly suprised that there was a customized note for me from my stylist. It made me feel like this box was definitely made for me. I loved the packaging and loved that it was purple!
Here's what I got:
Elm Super Skinny Distressed Ankle Jean
Denim Six, Medium Wash, 20
I love the jeans because they actually fit my waist and hips very well. However, they were a tiny bit too long (probably a half inch or so), but I can definitely roll the bottoms up. The distressed look is something that I have been getting more and more into lately and I’m really excited to wear them with a pair of cute booties!
Gracia 3/4 Sleeve Button Down
Prescott New York, Navy, 2X
I was surprised how soft this shirt was. It is made with a really comfortable material, but I honestly wouldn't wear a button up to work. I'm also a huge fan of dark colors so this fits right into my closet. However, it seems a little too formal for my taste, but it’s a nice shirt. The buttons didn’t pull over my bust either, which is a plus!
Ashley Tie Waist Dress
City Chic, Black / Light Blue, L
I love City Chic's prints, but I am not a fan of something that emphasizes my stomach. Being plus size with a shorter torso, these types of items fall right under my bust and it's not too flattering (if you know what I mean). If this was A-Line without the tie waist, it would be a home run for fall. I could pair this with a pair of knee high boots and a cute vest, but I wasn't a big fan. If you like tie waist dresses, this would be perfect for you!
Tara Short Sleeve Woven Trim Knit Tee
Delancey Studio, Burgundy / Ivory, 2X
This shirt is VERY comfortable, but the quality just wasn't what I thought it was going to be. It's a super cute top to wear with leggings when I'm lounging at home, but I probably wouldn't wear this out. The chiffon at the bottom of the top gave it more of a girly feel so it was more than just a t-shirt. However, it was almost too casual for me and the price was a little too high for my liking.
Luxor Coated Legging with Moto Panel
RWN by Rawan, Black, 20
I'm a sucker for leggings. Especially ones with details like this. But, the length was a tiny bit too long, like the jeans, but I am IN LOVE with them. I love leather, lace, and anything with fringe so this is PERFECT! I can't wait to wear these with a pair of booties and my faux leather jacket.
- RWN by Rawan Luxor coated legging with moto panel - $69
- Delancey Studio Tara short sleeve woven trim knit tee - $55
- City Chic Ashley tie-waist dress - $79
- Prescott New York Gracia 3/4 sleeve button down - $59
- Denim Six Elm super skinny distressed ankle jean - $69
Total Cost: $331
Total Cost + 25% full box purchase discount = $248.25
I am pleasantly surprised with the items I received. I felt like my stylist had an idea of what I liked, but with any subscription service (especially those with clothes), I believe it's hard to nail your style down the first time just by reviewing a questionnaire. Everyone has quirks and different things they want to try, so it's great to get someone else's input and point of view.
The cost of each item wasn't too much either. They're similarly priced to items you can find at department stores, but this subscription service takes away the need to go into the store to try things on. Well worth the cost in my opinion!
Overall, I will definitely get another box in the near future and I also want to try their Active Box, too!
