Walkin' tall against the rain

I wrote about PHI's chic tough girl Spring '10 collection back in September and ironically I had titled that post "The final chapter", not knowing the label would announce they were shutting down a few months later. I work right by their flagship store in NY so when I heard they were having a huge closing sale last week, I had to stop by. I was pretty overwhelmed with the clothes and instead focused my time on acquiring a pair of these monster metal heels once I spotted two huge boxes of them. There were samples in black and white and I managed to fish out my size in the color and style I wanted. The style that was actually produced had a peep toe, but I much preferred the closed toe sample after trying both on. I seriously don't know when I will get around to wearing these things, but at $50 I couldn't say no!

Argh! I so wish I was in NY last week for the sale! I saw a pair of these on Ebay (the ivory version) and I was so tempted to buy, but they were a little bigger than my size so I decided to let them go. They were sold for $38!! I wish I could find the black ones like you have, so utterly awesome.

Please post a piccy of you wearing them, I'd love to see them on!

ACK! I'm so jealous you got those! I wanted a pair, but of course, they never make runway samples in a 36. They had sooo so many good shoes.
