    After we broke the news that the cocktail-and-bridal-dress extraordinaires behind Eel & Ermine were planning on packing up their Presidio Heights haven and high-tailing it to the Mission, we knew it was only a waiting game before more exciting tidbits rolled in. The design duo, Elinor Diamond and Evelyne Aikman, didn't disappoint: They're hitting us with two more fun updates!

    For their second act, the gals pulled together an inspiring lookbook that has our mouths agape. Seriously, this spring/summer collection hits all the right sartorial notes — we’re ready to put that monkey-print, Peter Pan blouse in our closets, like now. “We're always looking for ways to create clothing with clean lines and a slightly vintage feel, but we didn’t want the clothes crossing into the kitsch or costume zone,” says Diamond. “We played around with proportions and added hints of flare like gold silk-lame, and metallic lizard brocade. Essentially, we design what we wish people would wear. Metallic-gator cigarette pants might not be for everyone…but two girls can hope.” Here’s to hoping — and ogling! Peep the sweetness after the jump.

How IKEA Solved My Big Closet Dilemma

If you live in a city, you probably have an awkward closet. Either it's shallow, two inches away from your bed, or even worse, non-existent. The latter was my situation. When I moved into my Brooklyn apartment last year, I turned the living room into a bedroom, which meant plenty of wall space, but zero shelves or rods for read
