Update: Due to significant changes in the company and a terrible downward spiral in denim quality, I no longer recommend shopping through Vault Denim. I now buy all of my jeans through Nordstrom Rack’s app, HauteLook, which regularly features my favorite brands of designer jeans at half the cost. I highly recommend it! My current favorite brands are Joe’s Jeans, Genetic Denim, Hudson Jeans, Frankie B, Mother Denim, and 7 for all Mankind.

When a couple of Vault Denim reps found me this summer via my Mom Jeans post and asked me if I wanted to become a rep for their company, my first response (after I gagged a little) was no, no, no, and NO.

In-home parties make me squirmy, selling makes me squirmy, and combining the two made me nauseous.

(Nothing wrong with either – it’s just not for me.)

But I couldn’t shake the idea of the amazing service that Vault offered – designer denim at half the price – and how badly I personally wanted to take advantage of it.  I had just finished losing weight, all of my jeans were too big and starting to look uncomfortably like Mom Jeans, so I was about to shop for some new ones.  Vault would save me hours of searching for jeans on clearance!

So finally, I offered to co-host a party.  I still refused the idea of being a rep, but at least this way I could buy some jeans.

The party ended up being one of the most fun things I had done in a long time.   I got two pairs of awesome jeans for myself AND had the privilege of sharing the exhilarating feeling of what good jeans can do with several friends.

I mean, look at this!!  It’s all in the jeans, people. all. in. the. jeans.

After writing about our party, I had many people ask me about having a party of their own.

Which got me thinking.

My Vault reps from Atlanta weren’t going to want to come to Birmingham this often, and I would be attending these parties anyway because I enjoyed them so much.

So.  Why didn’t I want to be a rep again?

Oh yeah – the sales.

Finally, after what felt like the hundredth person asked me about having a party, I realized that I wouldn’t have to sell – people were begging me to hook them up!

And so, after some serious research about what it means to be a Vault rep and discovering that it was unbelievably easy,  I became a rep.

(I seriously can’t believe I just typed those words.  I feel like I need to apologize to in-home parties everywhere for my previous dissing behaviors.)

So now I get to take advantage of the great prices Vault has anytime I want, and even better, I can help solve the problem of Mom Jeans, one butt at a time.

What I will NOT be doing is crowding up my blog with stuff about Vault.

I promise – this is not going to become a hub for self-commercials.  The thought makes me squirmy all over again.

So, since I won’t be mentioning Vault here, like, hardly ever, here’s what you need to know from this one and only Vault post:

–  I have two parties in December if you’re wanting to attend one: Monday, December 5 and Friday, December 9, both in the 280 area. If you’re interested in coming to one of them, let me know (via email or comment) and I’ll get you the details.

–  I had many of you non-locals ask me how you could find out information about Vault in your area, and I previously couldn’t help you at all.  Now I can.  If you want to host a party in your area (and earn free jeans – hostesses get 10% of the sales credit toward their own jeans!) or if you’re interested in becoming a rep yourself, let me know.

–  Vault will actually have online ordering starting soon (which will be AHHH-mazing), and will be available through the Vault website.

– If you want to join my Vault team and become a consultant, I’d love to have you! I’ll be glad to give you all of the nitty-gritty details and walk you through every step.  Just email me at rachel@graspingforobjectivity.com!

So that’s it – you know where to find me if you want more information.

  1. I’m working on losing some weight but when I do I want to find out how to have a Vault party here on the west coast. I have one pair of “nice” jeans and I want to wear them every day because they fit so well and I get so many compliments. Good jeans go a long way!

  2. I can’t wait til they are selling them online! I just finished losing 44lbs and I finally bought a cheap pair of Old Navy jeans, size 6, to replace the size 14s I was cinching up with a belt. So now I have all of one pair of jeans my size, and all of my wondering around shopping hasn’t come up with much. I would like to say, btw, that your blogging about your weight loss efforts was crucial to my loss and I quite appreciate it:)
    Side question: Is there a reason this doesn’t undermine designer sales?

    1. That’s awesome!! 44 pounds is a lot of work – I’m impressed!!

      Vault buys up all of the overstocks of designer jeans. So they never know exactly what they’re going to have, but they always have a good selection. As far as how it is that the online ordering isn’t going to undermine sales, I don’t know the answer to that.

  3. I’m definitely interested in attending an event. I would love to be on your email list also. I’ve always been curious about the “magic” of designer denim.

  4. Hey! So glad I came across your blog…for two reasons, I’m also a blogger in your area…AND, I was just looking into becoming a Vault rep. Would love to attend one of your parties if possible to see what it’s all about. If you don’t mind, will you please send me the info? Thanks so much!

  5. Ha ha ha ha. I can’t stop laughing. You, a rep?! I do ‘t the you’ll have to worry about the sales at all. People will come flocking to you.

  6. Hi! I recently joined the Vault family as a consultant in Missouri! I am an Alabama girl at heart as I lived there until a few years ago. At any rate, I was wondering if I could use your “butt comparison” picture. If not, no problem…it’s just a really good shot! And, proves the point well!

    1. Congratulations on joining Vault – it’s so much fun!

      Feel free to point people to the photo on my blog by linking to it, but I would prefer if the photo itself wasn’t published anywhere else on the internet, since I don’t have permission from those ladies for it to be spread around.

      Thank you!

      1. Yes…that’s what I meant, linking that is! I think your blog is great and I’m sure my friends would as well!! I am excited to be a Vault Girl!! :D

  7. I have never heard of Vault Denim, but this sounds like such an awesome idea!!! I’m in PA, hoping to find someone around here so I can try this out!

  8. I am in the Seattle area. I have lost about 90lbs from a 18 to a 4-6!! Lots of hard work. I am still “learning” how to dress my new shape and I would love some help. How would I find a vault rep on the west coast?

    1. Congratulations – that’s excellent!! I can look a rep up for you – there are quite a few in the Seattle area. Can you tell me more specifically where you are?

  9. I just spent over an hour devouring your articles! Uugggggggg I just bought some old navy jeans that are going right back! I live in auburn Washington are there any reps for vault in my area??
