I have this really lovely multi-colour dress from Jessica Simpson. I like that the print is a cross between leopard prints and splattered paint. Very abstract. It reminds me of a local kueh too.. the Kueh Lapis Sagu.

In case you are wondering what a Kueh Lapis Sagu is, here is a photo I found on the web. It is a Malay/Indonesian dessert which is made from tapioca flour and coconut milk. I used to peel off each layer, name the colour and savour that layer slowly when I was a little girl.

Back to my dress, I wore it on the first day of Chinese New Year and I had a wardrobe crisis just as I was ready to step out of the house. Which pair of shoes can I match with the dress? I tried on my beige sandals, followed by a pair of red shoes. The shade of red was a bit deeper than the clutch I was holding and the ensemble didn’t look right. I ended up with very safe black, which was probably fine but not quite ideal.

So my question to you, or call that a plea for help, “Which shoe colour would go with my Kueh Lapis Sagu dress?”
