Luke Perry & Kristy Swanson in Buffy The Vampire Slayer, 1992.



There is a particular scene that is permanently etched in my memory of Buffy, played by Kristy Swanson, jumping on the back seat of Luke Perry's motorcycle in a prom dress & leather jacket. It was a cinematic reference that has forever led me on this quest to find the perfect leather, one that could seamlessly be thrown over a ballgown & accessorized with a wooden stake.

Finding the perfect fitting leather jacket is really not an easy feat. It feels as though I have scoured the world, surveyed the masses & sorted through countless styles- but the childhood Kristy Swanson dream remains.

Since I'm now such a seasoned shopper of all things leather- I thought I would make life a little easier for our Curator readers & select all the best leather 'must haves'.
