Wild nights in the Empire

There's nothing quite like a flowery brocade tail coat to make an avatar feel like a dissolute man about town. I think Mr. Maktoum, my boy avatar, owns a stable of racing horses and is rapidly working his way through the family fortune. He also spends time at balls and loves a good dance, especially if his partner is light on her feet.

Mr. Maktoum neatly escapes the hawk-eyed dowagers, however, and has yet to accept an engagement to an eligible parti. Why give up his freedom, after all?

His clothier for nights out on the town (when he isn't wearing ~silentsparrow~) is the Caledonian Nix Sands. The best part about buying this ensemble is the pricing, 550L for an enormous range of items (including two pants and four gloves and four shirts and...). Definitely a good investment when one's estate allowance looks a bit grim.

I think in this picture, Mr. Maktoum is about to go to the Gaiety Theater and mingle with the demimonde. Perhaps there's a burlesque to accompany the bitter taste of absinthe on his tongue...

Mr Maktoum swept me off my feet today, he's such a charmer and a great dancer too, and he didn't even mind being dragged around the shops..perfect man!

Hee! Thank you! It's his strong connection to the *cough* feminine, I'm sure.

Looking forward to your post -- you looked so elegant!

Mr Maktoum reminds me of one of the characters in the Trollope I'm reading at the moment. No doubt he pays attention to the ladies' fortunes as well as their dancing ability!
