I used to do Stitch Fix, but since having my son, I'm too big for most of their items. Their 14+ sizes are very limited. I've heard they are working on it, but until then, Stitch Fix is not a good fit for me. Someone in my online mom group pointed me towards Dia & Co. They specialize in size 14+. Yeah! I signed up immediately and received my first box this week.
Details of how it works: For $20 a shipment, you get a personalized style pack of five items. Then, you try everything on and decided to keep 1, 2, 3, 4, or all 5 items. The $20 stylist fee is credited to your purchase. And if you buy all five items, you get an extra 20% off.
I unboxed my items and immediately loved the style. If they all fit, I would have kept the entire box. As it happens, a few of the pieces didn't quite work. Let's look at all the items:
Item #1: Calvin Klein Stripped Chiffon Maxi Dress $78
Pros: Pretty colors. Nice and lightweight. Like the thicker straps.
Cons: Black to color transition hits at largest part of my stomach. Made me very self-conscious. Also about three inches too short to really be a maxi for me.
Item #2: ABS Miley Necklace $38
Pros: Love the simple shapes. Love the layering. Love silver and black together.
Cons: I don't wear a ton of jewelry (but maybe I should war more).
Item #3: Lucky Brand Crochet Tank $59.50
Pros: Love the lace and black. It's definitely the right length.
Cons: Check out that side boob! Would definitely need a very different bra with this one.
Item #4: Maison Jules Knit Striped Tank with Patterned Detail $34.50
Pros: Lightweight. Interesting pattern detail. Not too expensive.
Cons: May be hitting a little high. Possibly be fixed with different bottoms.
Item #5: Levi's Bootcut Dark Wash Denim $58
Pros: Fit great on the waist/hips/butt. I love dark wash denim.
Cons: The bootcut is really wide. I think I need a slimmer cut from above the knee and below.
So, what did I keep?
Item #2 and #4: I loved the necklace and have resolved to wear more jewelry. Plus that tank was the right length, weight, and pattern. I need more good layering tanks in my closet.
