Dia Unboxing; 5-14-20

Today I did my first unboxing video, for my bimonthly Dia box which arrived recently.*

Here’s what I found inside:

Quick impressions–love the dress, which will be great with the drawstring cardigan over it for air-conditioned indoor wear. Like the top a lot and will try it with the skort. Dubious about the skort but willing to try. Capri leggings are not really my thing because I like to cover my ankles if I am going to cover my legs. But they may be good for working out.

I’ll try these things on and let you know how they look and what I keep!

*Dia & Co is a plus-sized women’s clothing subscription service. They send five pieces per box. There is a $20 fee which is credited to your purchase if you keep anything and you get 25% off if you keep everything. They use individual “stylists” who have access to your past reviews and comments. The only downside is that in the past I have kept something just to cover the styling credit or to get the 25% off that I didn’t really want, which is wasteful. But in general the cost is reasonable (If I keep all five pieces in my box this month it will be $145), the surprise is fun, and they have access to brands I don’t see elsewhere. They have now added an actual store front where you can manually add things to your box and/or buy them off-cycle as individual items, but I have not tried either of those options yet.

Look; 5-14-20

Today we have the Universal Standard Misa jersey dress in eggplant, and plain grey leggings from Woman Within.*

*I honestly don’t know for sure which leggings these are either. I’ve had them a while.

Look; 5-12-20

Today I am making an attempt to look a bit grown up as I have a work Zoom this afternoon that will be a bit more “real” than the average. So, sober makeup and clothes. Here we have an eShakti dress in navy with a turtleneck collar and sleeveless*, leggings from Woman Within**, and a lovely purple fleece jacket/coat from Torrid.

*They do not seem to sell this exact dress anymore.

**I honestly don’t know for sure which leggings they are. I’ve had them a while.

Fashion Notes

I’ve decided to start adding some details on my outfits and makeup from Insta here on the blog. I’ll keep them separate from the main blog so you don’t have to see them if you don’t want to.
