Bought... a pair of cowboy boots (from R-Soles, Kings Rd) and a pair of Nike sweat bands (any branch of Olympus sports). No you're not suposed to wear these together, just make sure you wear one or both of them a lot. They're hot.

Gone... salsa dancing at The Cobden Club (call 0181 960 4222) on Monday nights. The place is packed with young and beautiful ex-clubbers.
