Isn't the swimsuit in the poster shown above the most beautiful swimsuit you have ever seen? Well, I think so, so I sure hope to get to this new exhibit at Esse Purse Museum. "Changing Tides," which opens Tuesday, May 10, is on loan from the collection of the Fashion History Museum in Cambridge, Ontario. The exhibition features suits from the 1900s onward, "from voluminous wool bathing costumes and silk pageant suits to gingham bikinis and skin-tight spandex." 

The show runs through Aug. 7. Admission is $10 ($8 for 60+ and military), and also gets you in to the permanent handbag exhibit.
