Sad news in Oklahoma Pretty. The Prohibition Room is closing today.
For those not local The Prohibition Room is a restaurant/bar located in the historic Gold Dome near 23rd and Classen. While I was never what you would call a regular I did enjoy the times I went (most notably after Biting The Apple) so when I had the chance to say goodbye the other night I jumped at it.
I have always loved the Gold Dome. I remember going there with my mom as a child when it was a bank and staring at the ceiling. I read once that due to the unique structure clouds would actually form in the dome but I never saw this myself.
I wore black knee highs with purple tops. I bought them off Ebay and they are from China so I have no idea who made them. They are very comfy though and stay up really well. I didn’t have to pull them up once.
A Singular View
From the Back
And when I was out and about:
Historic Floor, meet my sock
I'm Coordinated! (A historic counter)
And because I really wish you could see what I saw as a child, the inside of the dome.
Still No Clouds
While it is sad that the Prohibition Room will be no more the dome itself, once scheduled for demolition (We do that here with all the cool stuff), appears to be safe. I hope it is because it is unique and holds worlds of wonder and should be preserved.
I'm a lady
My absolute favorite pattern is argyle. I own so many different variations of it it’s kind of scary. Most socks I own are some variant of black/grey/red so I was superexcited to find these while surfing Ebay.
After royal purple my favorite color is forest green. These fit that bill nicely. I believe this is actually supposed to be an OTK but I wear them a bit baggy. As I’ve made clear in the sidebar —> I’m anti OTK. As a girl of the fluffy variety OTKs have a tendency to either fall down (even with sock garters) or bind. While I think nothing of wearing angora in 100+ degree weather binding and sagging are just not doable for me. Socks should be comfortable. OTKs are not.
But I digress. These socks are wonderful. They have a great contrast of color and stay up very well (when pulled to just below the knee). They make me feel like I should be Riverdancing. I wish I had a bit more information to give on them, but they are from China and the label is written entirely in Chinese. It does have a cute lamb on it though.
As an aside there will be no post tomorrow. I will be wearing socks, but I have to get going early to help set up for an event. Since I’ll be in costume my socks will reflect that and will be a simple pair of white knee highs. I’ll try to get some shots of them for a Sunday post before they are covered in fake blood. Yes, I go to weird events. Maybe I’ll even get some before and afters, provided I don’t hit the pink champagne too hard.
Hope ya’ll have a socktastic weekend!
