Got a fab dress and now need royal blue sandals/shoes to go with it for a wedding next Saturday. Cant find any on the web......running out of time.......beginning to panic!

My local branch of Office has these in royal blue suede

can only think of sources for turqoise or navy at the mo - will have a rummage.
Time's a bit tight to get something dyed but you could do a home dye job on something in white satin if you're up for it.

What's the outfit like? Would silver or gold or something work if the MN Search Gurus can't find royal blue? Natural straw-y colour to match hat?

Oh no, do I have to find a hat too? Heres the ... dress

I have a cream jacket......would these shoes go with the dress?

There is a pair on the Schuh website, can't link to them though because Schuh is a stupid site !

Havin gjust looked at the link of your dress, I'd say that the 'Tina' heels would be the best of the bunch I've found so far.

these look closer to royal than navy and might be worth a look - these may bear further inspection too.

Schuh have absolutely loads, and deliver in a decent timeframe –
Pointy
Chunky
Mary Jane
flat
sky high
spangly sandal
wedge
metallic sandal

you might be able to get hold of those jewelled Indian slippers in royal blue - we have a pile-it-high independent shoe shop that has them in every colour, but a sari shop would have them too.

Topshop have an impossible-to-link to website, but have several possibilities:
blue twisted leather toepost flats,
blue jewelled toe loop flats,
a rather lovely round toe flat shoe in blue suede,
a peep-toe in suede with a cone heel
and some rather plain elastic strap sandals

court
flat court
peeptoe kitten heel
glitter court
patent ballerina
heeled Mary Jane
satin evening sandals

Agree that the Tina ones are pretty good though

Thanks for all your great suggestions. Cant believe I'd never seen the schuh website - its great. Think I'm in love with these
