There’s a new place in town for frame fashionistas (and fashionistos) and it’s nested right in the heart of Linden Hills. Owl Optical was hatched by lovebirds Chris and Julie Hansen, two people literally brought together by a thing for glasses. They met when Julie “helped him pick out his frames” (ok, she literally helped him find frames) at a glasses shop many moons ago. Flash forward a few years and they’re hitched, have two fledglings of their own and just popped the champagne at Owl’s grand opening. I got to do the writing for le website, and it was one of those fantastic projects where they give you complete creative reign, shower you with compliments, put the copy up exactly as written and everyone is thrilled. Plus I got to use words like “fabulous” and other fashion lexicon. Fabulous!
