The Illustrated Encyclopedia of Androgyny

Screaming Mimi's is a fashion store based in Manhattan specializing in vintage clothing and accessories dating back to the early 20th century. Vintage or retro has been a staple of fashion experimentation for many decades, making its first major appearance in the 1920's as an essential part of "flapper" styling. This eclectic style includes not only the adoption of a variety of elements from different eras, but also the blending of items traditionally worn by both men and women. This ad from Screaming Mimi's shows the lack of gender differentiation that can result from this kind of experimentation.
