So everywhere you go these days, people are making an effort to "go green", from light bulbs to cars to clothing. Anything that helps out Mother Earth, I'm for it! That's why when I spotted these DEFY Bags, I had to check them out. Not only are their bags unique and completely cool, but they also make a statement -- political, social commentary, or just random observations of art and culture in an eye-catching and slightly retro design. And it's not just the way the bags look that make DEFY Bags so hot, it's the fact that they also have a 'go green' attitude. These messenger bags are perfect to carry around pretty much anything you'll need throughout the day and each one is truly individual because artists hand create the picture on the front from old billboard signs. Don't see a picture that expresses the true you? You can design your own flap! Another cool thing to check for after you find the bag that shows your personality the most? Look inside and see just what kind of message the original billboard was selling! Edgy, personal and made of recycled goods, DEFY Bags are worth more than a second glance!Price: Small: $115.00 - Medium: $120.00 - Large: $125.00Who Found It: idabone was first to add the DEFY Bags to the Hive.

Let's not kid ourselves...not every piece of vintage clothing we see is totally unique. When you've been buying and wearing vintage clothing as long as I have, you occasionally find yourself shopping the thrifts or online sites and seeing something very familiar. It takes just a moment and then you realize you either have the exact same item in your own closet or you've sold it in the past. And I'm always surprised how frequently this actually happens. So that's why I'm a complete sucker for any hand-painted vintage pieces--each one is totally unique. And there's something very special about wearing a custom-made piece that exhibits someone's artistry. Just click the slide-show to see some amazing hand-painted vintage selections.
