    I think you could get better opinions if we saw the drees. But I like the second ones.

    I like the idea of gold and strappy because it would be difficult to match the red of your dresses to a shoe. I do like the first Jimmy Choos! If you don’t like the price of those though,  how about something like these:

    I totally don’t know what to wear with my qipao either! 

    What about cute slipper-like flats for the kwa?  (I love the idea of the kwa, btw.  In retrospect I wish I’d bought a kwa instead of a qipao.)  Or would that be taking the traditional look too literally?

    And yes, suede doesn’t seem as well suited as other choices to the sheen of the fabric.  And I feel like with so much going on with the embroidery, the shoes should have simple lines (ie. bow might be awkward).  I also like the second glittery shoes the best.

    I’m tempted to find turqoise sandals for mine, since I love the colour combo and my qipao has some bluish detail.  Just not sure when I’d wear such a colour of sandal again.

    I like babyboo’s BCBG suggestion the best. If you have the dough, I would even suggest Mrs. Margarita’s wedding shoes. They may be old though and not widely available.

    Since your traditional dresses are quite busy in design, I would choose shoes that look as simple as possible. I would definitely oppose red because different fabric/shades are red would just look bad. Silver, gold would probably be the safest bet.

    If you want to an edgy look (modern as opposed to traditional looking), you can even rock black shoes or yellow (I believe yellow is one of the embrodery colors but it’s hard to tell on the computer screen).
