Hello and welcome to our first issue of our newly revamped blog, P.S. At Dia we are committed to elevating the voices of women in our community who inspire us. When we thought about what a new version of P.S. should be, we knew we wanted to dig deeper and tell stories you don’t always hear, all from thought-provoking plus size women. Consider this a place to read unexpected points of view on wellness, relationships, food, cooking and more. And of course, plenty of fashion.
I wrote this letter while on vacation in Vermont last week, in the most beautiful house, and on my long, slow walks I could feel a shift in the air. In the Northeast, we’re starting to say goodbye to summer. As much as nature’s continuing at its own cadence, not all parts of life feel like they’re ready to turn the page with the change of the season. That may be exactly why there’s never been a better time for new beginnings. My friends and I keep asking ourselves: How can we take this moment to consciously turn a leaf?
That’s why this issue is dedicated to the theme of “New Beginnings.” I’m thrilled to have some new contributors on board to muse on this very topic. Writer Laura Delarato tells us how quarantine in New York City helped her say “no” more often. Poet Priyanka Saju shares the unexpected twists and turns of her fertility journey in the first of her 4-part series on being pregnant in a pandemic.
We also have plenty of fall fashion, including a story on reinventing your look through the power of prints and our latest FILA capsule. You’re going to love the street-style-inspired collection—we take you behind the scenes of the collaboration.
Style is a powerful tool in shaping our life experiences and the clothes we wear can mark times when we embark on new beginnings. I’m so glad you’re on this journey with us.
In life and in style,
Founder of Dia&Co
