Dia & Co: My First Unboxing

Hi Y’all! I had a deal going with myself for a while that if I lost a certain amount of weight I would get a Stitch Fix subscription. I believe that Stitch Fix styles up to size 14 and I have been hanging at 16/18 for a while. Seriously, why wait!

Enter, Dia & Co., a plus size subscription styling company.

I was excited to start this service and looking at their site, Insta feed, Facebook, etc, they are committed to women embracing who they are no matter what size. I really value this!

When you sign up for a Dia & Co account they lead you through an extensive survey of style and fashion questions in order to get a good gauge of what you like or not. You have a say in what you would like to receive by vetoing items you are absolutely not interested in, putting emphasis on what you’d love, and everything in between. You can even give them full reign and just be totally surprised.

There is a $20 styling fee which is waived if you keep anything in the box and if you keep everything in the box you get an additional 20% discount. They also provide a prepaid envelop to mail back anything that you do not want to keep. There is no commitment to keep anything sent to you.

After filling out my survey I put this little blurb about myself:

I am in my 40’s and still feel like I am trying to figure out my style. I am starting to see
that I like to wear things that mix casual with a little edgy. For example,
a cocktail dress with a leather jacket. I am starting to experiment more with prints,
and am trying to work more skirts and dresses into my wardrobe. I have  1000 t-shirts.
I like both neutrals and color and often wear a neutral base and a bright purse, jewelry, or jacket.
I also added this on a different page:
Right now my favorite brands are Mod Cloth, J.Jill for basics
(skirts and basic shirts but don’t love their clothes in general), Eloqui, Simply be,
and I do well at Target. I love Anthropologie but they have few plus size items.
I used to like Loft but as I get older I am finding their clothes boring.
I am a physician and work a lot,  but I like having comfort and style while I work.
In my off time I hike a lot, spend time with my husband and friends, travel,
and run errands.

There was an additional section that ask you for any specific needs and they would try to work that into your box-I asked for jeans.

I was very excited for my first box to arrive. Like a kid IN a candy store ON Christmas morning excited!!
My box arrived about a week after I initially signed up for the service. I was thrilled with the content and can tell my stylist and I will have a very good relationship.

 

My box stuffed with excitement:

Lovely Initial Presentation:

A personalized letter from my stylist. And I received a pair of jeans!! I really liked that they also discussed suggestions for how to wear your items.

Here is my itemized list of items, prices, and what it would cost if I buy everything. At this point I have only paid $20 which I will get back if I purchase anything from the box. The 20% discount is if I keep everything.

This is how it looked right out of the wrapping:

I am going to include several photos. The first were taken the night I got the box! So excited to try everything and the photos outside were taken by my supremely talented husband.

The first item I tried on was the Chetta B. Red dress. My face in this photo does not do justice to how much I love this dress. I felt classy!! This is not something that I would likely pick for myself. My only concern is that it would not get the wear it deserves. I don’t usually dress up this much for work and only go to dressy events a few times a year. But I would be ready with this dress!

These are the Love & Legend skinny jeans paired with a Mossimo top from Target. I LOVED these. Felt like they were made for me.

This is an attempt at a close up of the necklace they sent me. How did Dia & Co know that I absolutely love turquoise!
My husband took the below pictures outside a few days later and it helped me decide what to keep (though, let’s be real- I was a goner for the jeans and sweater!)

I ultimately decided to keep the jeans, sweater, and the necklace. While I love the dress and clutch, for my job it’s a bit too much and I felt it would not get worn.
I am thrilled about adding these pieces to my closet and cannot wait for my next box.
With Love, From Diana xo
