Missing Prince One Year Later

Friday, April 21st, 2017


Missing Prince one year later.  It’s been one year since we lost a major music and style icon but we still remember his legacy.  Prince was known for his flamboyant stage presence and amazing musical talent.  He was also known for one-of-a-kind fashion.  Here at Blink Optical, we followed his sunwear legacy and it never failed to impress.  Prince wore everything from Ray-Ban to Mykita but his true love was big and round.  When we say round……we mean truly round!  No semi-round shades for Prince, he went all the way and not many people followed.  Until know.  It took years for mainstream fashion to catch up to Prince but now that it has we can bask in the glow of round sunglasses.  Blink Optical has a vast array of round sunglasses for the Spring/Summer season.  Stop or check us out online. RIP Prince.

The Couple Known As Speidi Is Back

Wednesday, April 12th, 2017


The couple known as Speidi is back.  If anyone cares.  The couple, Speidi (a combination of their names Spencer/Heidi) have been a staple in reality television for over a decade.  Speidi pops up wherever cameras and money are available and now they are back with a little Speidi on the way.  Their only redeeming quality seems to be their taste in sunglasses.  They both wear aviators with G-15 tints.  G-15 is a combination tint which blends green and grey, creating a great tint for multiple conditions.  It increases contrast and is easy to focus through.  Here at Blink Optical, we’re not much for reality television but we can applaud the classic look of a well-worn pair of aviator sunglasses.  Stop by Blink Optical to view our selection of aviator sunglasses.

Orgreen offers new Spring 2017 colors.  Known for their titanium design and clean style, Orgreen is branching out in color options this season.  Generally Orgreen likes to stick with neutral colors, occasionally pairing a mild color with a bolder color on the inside of the frame.  Lately, we’ve seen new release Orgreen coming in with much more color variety.  For example, the Orgreen Courtney is available in an array of colors including the above showcased aqua blue.  You can now have your clean design and wild color all in one frame.  The Orgreen Courtney is still a stellar example of Japanese titanium and Danish design but the new color adds that bit of pop that may have been missing in previous Orgreen selections.  Not to worry, they will still offer their signature conservative colors but it is nice to have additional color options.  Available at Blink Optical.
