Today I did my first unboxing video, for my bimonthly Dia box which arrived recently.*
Here’s what I found inside:
- Meri Skye, Oceanway Halter Maxi dress in Burgundy/White.
- Cloth & Bloom, Raelin Cap Sleeve Top in Navy/Pink.
- Prescott New York, Kiki Drawstring Cardigan in Black.
- Prescott New York, Laurel Twill Cargo Skort in Tan.
- Lola Getts, Biscayne Performance Legging in Black.
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.
