    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!

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.
