With shows like Mad Men making a huge impact on fashion, it's no wonder that we are seeing the return of the waistline!For the new Fall 2011 season, there will be plenty of dresses reminiscent of the 1950's - 60's where fitted waists and full circle skirts will most definitely be the silhouette of choice!What better way to accent this feminine asset than a simple slim belt. Topshop's green double bow keeper belt is one of our favorites here at the Hive. In the perfect shade of classic Kelly green, the leather belt features two dainty bow keepers and a antique gold buckle. Wear it with pretty dresses or, for something more casual, pair it with a crisp white shirt and some high-waist jeans. (It also comes in - light tan, orange, aubergine and oxblood versions!)Where to Buy - TopShopPrice - $32.00Who - Melimeli was the first to add the Green Double Bow Keeper Belt to the Hive.
April is Earth Month. Are you doing your part to make a difference? Small changes can make a big impact. You don't have to turn your life upside down and change everything at once. Make little changes where you can! Here are a few ideas to get you started -* Use a reusable water bottle - Choose a stainless steel variety or one that is BPA free. BPA is a toxic substance used to make clear and shatterproof plastic. BPA has been linked to cancer, interferes with fertility, and could contribute to childhood behavioral problems like hyperactivity.* Use reusable shopping totes - Start by purchasing one or two to supplement your paper or plastic grocery bags, then build up your collection to eliminate them all together.* Switch to CFL light bulbs as your current ones burn out. CFL bulbs are more expensive but they last a lot longer. Switching out your old bulbs with new CFL bulbs will save on your energy bill in the long run.* Pack your lunch in a reusable lunch box or bag - There are so many styles to choose from these days, you won't look like a nerd when bringing your lunch to work. Rather, you'll look smart and savvy!Even the simplest things can go a long way towards making a big difference. Take small steps towards a better future by committing to be earth friendly whenever you are able.Brought to you by our friends from TheFind!
