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


So I rarely advertise on my own blog.

In fact, my least favorite negative comments are the ones where people accuse me of “writing to promote what I’m selling” on my denim posts.

Because it’s quite the opposite.

Besides the fact that I tell people to buy other store’s jeans all the time (I expect a thank you note from Express any day now,) I only got into the denim business because of my blog, not the other way around. I never had any interest whatsoever in doing direct sales – the only reason I did finally join Vault Denim (after much reticence and angst-filled soul searching about how much I despised sales) was because people wanted my help anyway, and it allowed me to offer my help easily, and at half-price.

And I still don’t like sales, but I do adore consulting with people to help them get a new butt.

The one discouraging thing, though, is that even though my jeans are at up to 50% off of retail prices, they are still $48-92, which disallows me to help some people that can’t pay that much for jeans (even though I posit that it is worth it to save up for one great pair of jeans rather than buying three not-so-great pairs.)


And so that brings us to today’s post.

Tuesday afternoon, I got the most exciting email EVER from Vault.

They marked down over half of my 250 pair Designer Denim inventory to $27.50!!

They have never done this before. 

$27.50. For jeans that, at retail, could cost $150 or more.

$27.50. For some of the top designer name brands that I’m really not supposed to say here but I really really really REALLY want to (email me if you wanna know.)

$27.50. A price at which Gap and Old Navy can’t even scoff.

2750 Jeans

I went through my jeans Tuesday night, and the above are the 127 pairs of jeans that are currently $27.50 – and more are on the way. And I can order even more if I sell out, for at least the next little while. Unfortunately, I do not yet know how long this promotion will last. The only catch, though, is that they’re not returnable because they’re trying to close out all of these styles to make room for new jeans.

This opportunity excites me so much because it gives even more people the affordable opportunity to find out what a difference a great pair of jeans can make!

So if you’re interested, here are your options.

If you’re relatively local to Birmingham, Al:

1. Get a private fitting appointment with me. Due to the unbelievable bargain of these jeans, I will be trying to be as available as possible over the next few weeks. My appointments for this weekend filled up already, but I will be doing private fitting days on 3/5, 3/12, and 3/18. Let me know as soon as possible if you would like an appointment on one of those days.

2. Host a party. I or one of my teammates will come to your house, and all you have to do is invite your friends…and you get 10% of the total sales of your party to put toward your own jeans.

If you’re in the US but not local:

1. Email me – All of the Vault inventories are marked down, and I have team members all over the country, so I can try to locate you one with which you can host a party. If I don’t have a team member in your area, I can try to find another Vault rep nearby.

2. Mail order from me – I typically REFUSE to mail order jeans to anyone, because I am all about the fit. However, if you know that you know that a brand works on you, I will send it to you. Or if you’re willing to risk $27.50 (plus shipping) for an over-the-air fitting, we can try it – but of course I can’t make any guarantees on this, and I’d prefer not to go this route.

3. Join my team – this is a great time to make some extra money and get some great jeans because the deals are so good. Plus, I always need new team members to take all the referrals I get. Email me and I’ll be glad to get you more information.

In short, let me know if you’d like to get a new butt, and I’ll help you find one.

  1. I need a person in Oregon! I have friends who are interested in a party and I think/know we are all interested in a party with lower priced jeans. Thanks for your jean wisdom. My HH thanks you too!

  2. How exciting! I hope you are able to get many of those wonderful jeans onto happy clients during this sale. As for those who take issue with your talking about jeans on your blog as being nothing but self-promotion…. I totally get your reasoning as to why their opinion couldn’t be farther from the truth, but even if they had hit the nail squarely on the head, so what? Why shouldn’t you be able to use your blog as a vehicle for your business? What is wrong with you wanting to work in a way that helps out your family’s bottom line and using any resources at your disposal to do so? (Proverbs 31, anyone?) I personally am not so very interested in fashion and tend to get all of my clothing second hand, but I appreciate reading your denim posts because like everything else you write they tend to be quite amusing. If I don’t want to order or rush out to a Vault party I don’t have to. And what about the vast majority of your blog that has absolutely nothing to do with denim, that you must dedicate quite a bit of time to crafting such well-written posts almost EVERYDAY? I’m getting free entertainment and a bit of a sense of community and it is costing me nothing, so if you want to “advertise” a bit I wouldn’t complain. But like you point out, you don’t. You actually try hard to avoid doing so. That you should blog about Vault a bit is natural because selling jeans is part of your life, which just happens to be the subject your blog. Sorry for such a long rant, I guess I just felt annoyed that you would be receiving that sort of criticism.

    1. Seriously, thank you for your opinion! I try to not let most negative comments go to my head, but at the same time I never want to be *that* person hawking my wares all over the internet. I am a blogger first and a jeans consultant eighth or lower.

      (Okay clearly I Have priorities above blogging but just to give the breadth between the two.)

      Anyway, thanks for the encouragement! I appreciate that you see value in what I do.

  3. Wow, that’s awesome! Can you help me find someone in Northern Illinois, west of Chicago? (I live in Freeport, Il) I SOOOO need a good pair of jeans, and Express doesn’t carry their curvy jeans anymore (I have a big butt and I don’t like crack, hee hee). I’m very mad at Express. I even sent them mild hate mail :)

  4. I’d love to do a fitting on 3/5 or 3/12 assuming you have some smallish sizes left. Just let me know what times you have available.

  5. I would love a new butt! I’m in southwest Michigan, not far from Kalamazoo, but in Battle Creek. Do I have to host a party to buy jeans from a local rep? I’m not sure I want to go that route, but would enjoy the sale price of $27.50. :) Your thoughts?

    BTW, I love Karen’s comment and agree with her wholeheartedly.

  6. YESSS!!! I tried to email you last night but it was from my reader app from my phone — I think it did NOT go according to plan. (Forgive me if you get this twice.) Do you have any reps in Maine? I am pretty confident with my jeans if we HAD to go that route, but I’d rather find a rep. (Or be one … ) :)


    1. I got it and I’m looking around for you! But it doesn’t look good – I don’t even see an inventory there. :-/

      So I’m thinking we might have to go the other route.

  7. WHY AM I PREGNANT RIGHT NOW!?! Seriously, I’ve been wanting to buy jeans from you for a while, but I’m waiting until my body is no longer in incubation or postpartum stage. I need to find a butt-twin to be fitted for me!

    1. I’m going to assume that question was rhetorical…
      I *think* the sales will last until mid-April. So hurry up and get that baby out.

      1. I have been known to play dumb when people, seeing that I’m having 3 kids within 4 years, ask me “Do you know what causes that.?” Their reactions are priceless.

        Baby’s not due until the end of April, so alas, I must miss out on this one. But I’m going to get some jeans one day!

  8. 1. What at Wichita, KS?!?! I desperately would love to fly to you and have you help me, but that seems crazy. HA!

    PS You know I get so tired of “bored” ppl telling bloggers what is or isn’t appropriate to write about. Here’s an idea if you don’t like it or lose interest within the first two sentences then MOVE ON! No one asks anyone to read their blogs and if you want to promote your business then you should! :)

    Hope you have someone…I just really want a private fitting!! :)

    1. I have been trying to find a rep in Wichita for another reader – with no luck! Oddly enough, I’ve gotten a huge amount of requests for Kansas lately. Are y’all having a jean shortage?

  9. Im just a little devastated that I live in a different country :-( I lost a lot of weight after I had my daughter and had to reshop jeans 3times! Not only do I weigh less but my body is a completely different shape..I finally found a pair of skinnys Im loving but I would still love to able to have a fitting with you. Oh well one day !!

  10. Is this sale still going on? I need some new jeans since none of mine fit after having my daughter. I’m in northeast PA kind of close to Scranton. Anyone around here?

    1. The sale is going on still, but unfortunately, I don’t see anyone near Scranton. The closest is in Kinnelon, NJ, and that looks pretty far away. Sorry!

  11. I think I’m a little late finding your post. Are you still doing this sale? I have never found a pair of jeans I like! I would love to try out some of your stuff. I’m in Birmingham too.

    1. I do still have a good bit on sale, but mostly in smaller sizes. It’s been selling like crazy, so hard to keep in stock! My next private fitting day is Monday, May 27. What size are you? I can give you an idea of how much I have in your size that’s on sale.

  12. What kind of styles have you got there? If you have a Mother the looker hi rise skinny in 27/32, Id be interested.
