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 firstname.lastname@example.org!
So that’s it – you know where to find me if you want more information.
