Blink Optical: The Place to Shop for Eyewear



Marc Jacobs Eyewear


Photography and Text by Tony Ward, Copyright 2018



The best place in Philly to shop for eyewear is Blink Optical, located at 415 South Street.  I say this without hesitation mainly because of the incredible inventory they carry, upwards of 3000 frames to examine on a wall of eyewear that is almost overwhelming to take in at first glance.  On a recent visit in search of a new pair of sunglasses  I was greeted by a very polite salesperson who asked if there was a specific lens that I was looking for.  My answer was no but if I can’t find anything in this place – with all these choices – something is wrong with me. I proceeded to take the next 15 to 20 minutes carefully studying each frame by working my way up and down the aisle, from one end of the store to the other. It was a process where I really had to concentrate by looking at each individual frame, making sure not to miss the one in three thousand that I liked the best.

By the time I painstakingly got to the very end of the display I noticed a frame that reminded me of a designer I was presently wearing.  I pointed to the frame that seemed to stand alone in the crowd reminiscent of the contours of the glasses that I  currently use for reading. Out of the 3000 frames I selected Marc Jacobs eyewear. Now I have a complimentary pair of MJ, one for reading and the other for cruising.

Rima and Pia got to know each other during their studies in the city of Hamburg, Germany. They have completed project work and housework together. Both of them quickly realized that they are a good team and complement each other in a variety of interesting ways. They became fast friends mainly because of their common passion for fashion design. They have now both finished their studies and would like to make a hobby their profession. Rima and Pia, currently are active in the commercial and service sector, and would like to start a professional reboot and of course geared towards the fashion industry.
