Vanity


As long as I'm making recommendations, I have to put in a word for my favorite jeans store, Vanity. If I got only two things out of my roommateship with Brozy, one would be El Azteca (she introduced me to their nachos) and the other would be jeans from Vanity. (Note: El Azteca makes it harder to fit into jeans from Vanity.)

Vanity is a little trashy store. It's even more trashy because I usually go to the one in the Valley Fair Mall. So trashy, trashy, trashy. BUT every Vanity, no matter where it's located, has a huge selection of jeans. And they often have lots and lots of jeans on sale. Their off-sale price averages at about $40. Their on-sale price is typically from $10-$20.

And this is the MOST IMPORTANT PART: Vanity offers a variety of LENGTHS for every pair of their jeans. I have awful, short legs. This means that finding pants is really hard for me. But at Vanity, I can choose the length that works for me. I have friends (Ambrosia) with long legs. Once I even borrowed a pair of Ambrosia's jeans, and even with high heels on, there was probably about 5 extra inches of pant leg. (I borrowed them only for as long as it took to try them on, laugh at the ridiculous length, and find a pair of my own pants.) The lengths range from, I think, 29-35. That's a pretty big range in my opinion.

And yes, Vanity is a trashy store, but I really think that most of their jeans are cute and unique. And I get lots of compliments on them by non-trashy people. And so I highly recommend the store, with only two warnings: 1) Sometimes their stretchy jeans are just way too stretchy, so I try to be picky, and 2) Most of their jeans are extremely low-rise and you think that they're going to fall off your butt, and they will unless you're wearing a belt. So wear a belt. But seriously, buy Vanity jeans.




(Notice my office is looking slightly more sparse? Have I mentioned I'm leaving my job? Sob!)

Thanks for the tip! I will definitely check them out next time I need jeans.

You look hot in your jeans! I need to go to Vanity because I usually need a 33 inch length and I've only ever found it at Express

I am in the market for some jeans, so I will have to go there. I have never been in that store before...

They look great on you, by the way!

Naming your store after one of the 7 deadly sins is tricky, I suppose it works for a store like this.

I just want to see a Golden Corral type restaurant called 'Gluttony'

I am sure that a lot of people would still go.

Anyway, I do like the way these jeans look on you, that's why I tried to find the maternity equivalent. According to you I succeeded.

Holy major life changes, Batman! We have much to discuss!

Just wait until the need for uber stretchy paneled jeans arises. Vanity tends to go out the window. ;) But it's for (obviously) good reasons and only a temporary blip in your fashion sense.

Um, no I don't believe you HAVE mentioned that you're leaving your job. At least, not to your internet blog stalkers. Unless I somehow missed it with all the other exciting announcements that have been made lately. What's the deal? Are you getting a head start on becoming a SAHM?

Vanity is pretty great. (Our former coworker M introduced me to their jeans. So many good things came from that job.) Also, they do fall right off my butt. All the time. It's embarassing. I should wear a belt, but I'm afraid it will make me look fat(ter).
