Bag Spill: Jess LoPresto

We can’t get enough of the bag snooping we’ve been doing lately—peeking inside the carryalls of our Fossil colleagues is just too much fun! Today we’re turning Jess LoPresto’s bag upside-down to see what the Textile Designer has been toting around. As you’ll soon see, she’s one stylishly prepared mom! Jess’ bag pre-spill: the Sydney…

D.I.Y. Project: Knotted Watch Band

SHE’S CRAFTY! There’s something exciting about temporary transformations—you get to change the appearance of something, but the integrity and original form is still intact.
