Strappy, sparkly sandals for Christmas BUT with covered toe?

I'd like some sparkly sandals to wear with dresses but I need to be able to wear them with sheer tights. Any ideas?

Or alternatives for wearing short hemlines with legs that need a bit of a helping hand?

I like those, but I would usually spend about £40 on sandals and a lot more on walking boots. The other thing is that I'm not keen on pointy shoes as I have long toes and feel self-conscious about having big feet.

My feet are a 6 or 6 1/2. Is that big?

They're lovely! No you don't have big feet, I'm 7.5-8 and I'd buy them. In fact I might. DD age 11 has size 6 feet!

I used to wear a 7 or an 8. I think my feet have shrunk with age and weightloss. Who knows?

Cheaper suggestions very welcome.

Some one posted a John Lewis own brand pair which were virtually identical but only £59. I love them but I like a much higher heel. Have a look on the JL website? These are nice but not worth £100.

I have a pair of Red or Dead Dorothy heels. Silver glittery shoes witha round to. Gorgeous.

They are lively shoes. Bit pricey though for something you would not get much wear out of. My feet are size 7 and I'm only 5 foot 4. They grew half a size with each child!

Lovely not lively!

The Dorothy shoes? I got them as a Christmas present 3 years ago and have worn them to two weddings, two Christmas days, a burns Night and a few other days and nights out. I loves them and would wear them all the time given half a chance. Quite.comfy too.

I was trying to find the Red or Dead Dorothy's but came across these. V v v sparkly and quite cheap too:

I really shouldn't have looked at them. I think I may need them in my life now....,,

abigamarone Sun 15-Nov-15 22:28:48

This sort of thing?

RedMapleLeaf Sun 15-Nov-15 23:12:06

Oh my god, you lot are great at this.

I have spent 200% of my November clothing budget and we're not even half way through the month yet.

What are you like with dating advice?

There's a John Lewis alternative to the mint velvet ones. Half the price. Called Blake

BrendaandEddie Mon 16-Nov-15 07:49:45

Not the shuwish ones IMO. Trashy

I haven't clicked on the bit.ly link!

I've ended up going more for shoes than sandals, although I have heard of a legend of toe-less tights. My dresses ended up quite sparkly (I was only supposed to buy one, nevermind) so I don't mind making my shoes a bit less glitzy and a bit more comfortable.
