Step into a burlesque dancer's closet, and it's difficult to remember which decade you're in. Racked visited "1920's tap sensation" and burlesque veteran Gin Minsky's apartment, where she showed off her vast collection of vintage fascinators, furs, capes, and jewelry (and a little bit of her routine as well).
