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.

With all the talk in the world about green companies, sustainability, eco-friendly everything - solar power, Priuses, accessories and fashion companies - are catching up to the global issues and making ethically adorable consumables.

This Atlas thermos works for your morning coffee and then your daily water bottle. Stainless steel doesn't leave the water with a weird taste and they can hang out in your car without releasing carcinogens into your water, unlike those ubiquitous plastic water bottles.It's cute, it's sustainable, it's educational, and it's the least obnoxious way to go green!Where to Buy - Urban OutfittersPrice - $34.00Who Found It - BrookeElisabeth was the first to add the Urban Outfitters Atlas Wrapped Thermos to the Hive.
