Not long after posting about my Sseko’s last week, they arrived!
I’m obsessed with them right now. I just wish I had more ensembles to wear them with. (Or that I was better at putting together ensembles.) I’ve tried a few different styles and worn them on short errands as a sort of “test run.” I’m glad I didn’t wear them to a party or anywhere where I knew people the first time. I was rocking the above style at Target, when they got all loosey goosey on me. I ended up having to re-tie them a few times in the store. Le sigh.
I learned from this: you must tie ’em supa tight! I had tied them gently and lovingly. They don’t want to be tied that way. They want you to pull that strap tight!
I am also loving the fact that the website has videos that teach you how to do each tie. I’m a visual learner, so I’d be lost otherwise. The “Classic Thong” style (top left and bottom right in the above picture) is my current favorite way to wear them. It’s a really easy style to tie, cute, comfortable, and I haven’t had any issues with the tie coming undone. I’ll definitely need to work my way up to any more difficult styles.
My friend Melissa (who first introduced me to the sandals) also pointed out that they have some new chiffon straps on the website. Ooh. Aaah. I foresee myself getting at least one other pair of straps. Some of them only cost $10! How can I pass that up? Now to decide, what other color should I get???*
