I'm useless. What shoes with this dress?

For DH's work xmas dinner dance I'm thinking of wearing a dress that's almost identical to this one:

I thought I'd put a sparkly belt on but then what shoes? The dress is navy. I have to heel heels as I'm very short but they have to be block style. Any ideas would be much appreciated. TIA

Fifi those shoes are divine! With a sparkly belt on the dress they would look so beautiful. I'd also suggest these from Schuh for £65 which are a little similar to Fifi's.

Thank you ladies. I'm glad you think the dress is dinner-dance material. The shoes are stunning fifi, just gorgeous, but I could never spend that kind of money on shoes in general, never mind party shoes (as I never party really - if I can avoid it). Would I look really boring in navy shoes, maybe a shoeboot type thing?

What about something like this? Just a touch of bling to jazz the outfit up?

Ooh leopard great idea. If you want comfy / could wear at work types Clark's diary view are ace

I have some grey leopard from there I wear for work. Aren't killer going out type (for me) but might work
