I went to the ‘Ivey Awards’, Minnesota’s version of the Tony Awards, this September. On and off of the red carpet, I saw many faces I recognized from SPECS OPTICAL. I stayed off the red carpet (my luck is I would slip, trip and fall.) Many of our eyeglasses were seen as well. I saw Kirk Originals, Rapp Limited, Francis Klein and Lindberg, all on people dressed to the nines for the awards show. The room was filled with tons of local celebrities, and celebrity watchers. I hope to see the pics in the local magazines!
Lyle and I went, prompted by his friends James Rocco and Jeff Scott, and we had free tickets (LOL). I’m glad I dressed up, because Lyle Jackson and his business partner Ellen Roeder of TULLE and DYE received the first award of the evening. The costumes they designed for the Ordway’s Beauty and the Beast were ‘beautiful’, ‘dazzling’, ‘amazing’. My personal favorite from the show was the cheese grater they designed and built. We were both surprised, shocked, and very happy.
Thanks for the surprise Jamie and Jeff!
p.s. I hope to add pics!
Ok, y’all…the weather has been drab as the summer winds down and we head into the fall/winter seasons. It’s time to brighten things up a bit. Daring colors are more popular than ever in fashion and your eyewear is not to be excluded. Check out some of the fun new colors and styles we are showing right now.
Above, from left to right, are the Kirk Originals Martha in S11-P114, Anne et Valentin Amy in 1010, and the Kirk Originals Otis in S09-P130.
Below, from left to right, are the Francis Klein Marcus in B98-1, Anne et Valentin Factory Seven in 0805, and the Theo moser in color 8.
These colors are truly brilliant and certainly fall into the category of ‘showstoppers.’ Are you daring enough to try one on? Stop on by Specs Optical any time….we WILL brighten your day.
Have you been spotted at Specs Optical? As you can see Kelly was spotted.
On June 28th you may have spotted Rama, of RAMASSIA in our shop. Ramassia is one of our distributors. Rama and his wife Assia, help us keep Kirk Originals, Theo and Anne et Valentin on our shelves. Rama is the son of Anne and Valentin. He took time out of his busy schedule to visit and show us some of the goods he reps. We were treated to a terrific dinner at La Chaya Bistro.
Maybe you spotted Renee Kraft, Tracy Terbell, Matt Braun, Bonnie Breeding, the Queen of England, Salvador Dali, or did you spot Elvis? You just never know who you will spot.
Shouldn’t you be spotted? Maybe in sunglasses by Tim Van Steenbergen, maybe a new Kirk Originals. Really, shouldn’t you be spotted in something by Specs Optical.
SPECS OPTICAL loves the charming international designers, whose eyewear collections grace our store. While John Oliva and Nancy Krant were in Milan (Italy) attending MIDO, the International Eyewear Exhibition (Optics, Ophthalmology, Optometry), they had a chance to catch up with some of the designers who create the hand-crafted, limited-production eyeglasses and sunglasses that we love and carry at SPECS.

April 23rd was great fun with Jason Kirk of KIRK ORIGINALS. We had a great parade of friends, fans of Kirk Originals, and new guests. It was a blast seeing all of the beautiful glasses Jason and the gang have made. We had good grub, and bountiful beverages.
In the picture I am wearing my new (still on its way) Kirk Original glasses. O.k. Did you notice the amazing shirt I am wearing….oh yea….it is a gift from Jason Kirk, and it is a hand made shirt by Kirk Originals.
Kirk Originals ‘ROCK’, and Jason isn’t half bad.
It is good to be me.
