Hajji Mart Shopping: Marc Jacobs Sunglasses

Yes, you read correctly, I said Hajji Mart Shopping! 

I figured while I'm out here in the "wonderful" desert, I'd find myself a little hobbie.. tee hee hee!  Visiting the local Hajji Marts once a week has become my thrill of the week!

It just so happens that, last week, I ran across theses little beauties:   

MARC BY MARC JACOBS Oversized Square Sunglasses with Retro Temples

.....and now I call them mine!

If you go into Nordstroms, these babies will run you "only" $98.  I know what you're thinking.. "the vintage shopper, paying that much for some sunglasses?"  Nope, not at all! 

The culture here is that you bargain for prices at the local markets, and is actually considered rude not to.

So, here's what I did:  first, researched the frames to make sure they were in season and "real", and obviously they were.  So, I went back to "my friend," as we say, and practiced my bargaining skills! 

In the end, I paid, just 20 dollars for these darling frames! 

As you see, I was super excited about my new glasses, and decided to model them in my dorm! 
Just for you, CS, just for you!  Lol, still in my uniform and all! 

Even though I can't wear them out here, I'll will definitely be rocking these gorgeous frames when I make my way back to the states! 

More Hajji Mart Shopping to come!!
