Have you heard of Dia&Co?
I tried out Dia&Co a few years ago and wasn’t super impressed. This time was totally different! Basically, the idea is a fabulous one. A team of stylists gets the answers to a bunch of questions that you answer about your style, size, like and dislikes as well as your social media platforms. They now also go up to a size 32.
They take all this info and send you a box filled with five items that should be right on target for what you love. You keep what you like, only paying for that, then send back the rest. You are charged a small styling fee of $20 if you don’t keep anything, but if you do, the $20 is discounted off the items you keep.
I Got a Style Box
When Dia&Co offered to send me another box to share with all of you, I was really excited. Allowing someone else to style me makes me push my own style boundaries and refresh my closet in time for summer.
I asked for brightly colored dresses, and only dresses. In past boxes I’ve gotten jeans and accessories, but I really love dresses and rarely wear jeans. The dresses were colorful which I was thrilled with.
Four out of five dresses in my box I would wear again, and the one I wouldn’t it more of the brow color scheme that I don’t personally love.
I love that most of these aren’t available in the Dia&Co shop, so you have to push your boundaries a little. Try a subscription service, get your own stylist and maybe you’ll discover something new about yourself.
Here’s What I Got:
Fit and Flare
Ok, this Zana V-Neck Fit & Flare Dress would not be something I’d pick up off the shelf. But putting it on and pairing it with a green lip, it was the perfect combination of colors and flare. It can be dresses up for down so many different way and the shoe combinations are endless.
The Springfield Sleeveless Surplice Maxi Dress is a bit more brown than red, so it’s not my favorite. However, I bet it would be perfect for the fall so I plan to hang onto it. I can imagine it with an orange blazer or even a leather cropped biker jacket. Perfect for the office or a night out with your friends.
I’m in LOVE with this print! Although I’d usually got with a lower neckline, this all worked out so perfectly. The Valencia Sleeveless Sharkbite Fit and Flare Dress is the brightly colored summer dress of my dreams. I’m looking forward to finding the perfect earrings and heels to dress this up. The club won’t know what hit it.
Coral Eyelet Dress
The Maria Sleeveless A-Line Knit Eyelet Dress is coral, almost red really. The shoulders are padded which I thought wouldn’t quite work, but it actually surprised me. I love prints and fun colors, but I know there will be occasions I’ll reach for this seemingly simple dress. Occasions it will be perfect for.
Off the Shoulder
I have a confession to make. I’m not really a blue kind of gal. Well, the occasional pair of jeans may be the exceptions, and I do wear light blue and teal, but not navy. The Colts Spring Cold Shoulder High-Low Dress fits just so perfectly, it makes me want to fall right in love with blue. So I wore it.
After shooting it with this perfectly yellow car, I’m planning on buying some bright yellow earrings and matching color heels. I will make this blue work.
I love modeling the items I get for all of you. I hope this encourages you to step out of your box and try the Dia&Co subscription service.
My advice for getting the perfect box?
- Make sure to take extra care with inputting your sizes and body shape. That helps the stylist choose the clothes that will fix you the best.
- Take the time to write in the comments box what you want your stylist to know. I included links to things I love so she had an idea of my taste.
- When you send back the items you don’t want, make sure to leave feedback for your stylist! That will help you get an even better box the next time around.
