Charlie's Angels for Halloween 2013

I guess I'm one holiday behind.  This year for Halloween I dressed as "Sabrina Duncan" from the original TV series "Charlie's Angels."

I was hoping to recreate this look:

My version of "Sabrina Duncan" - Everything for the costume is vintage from Ebay and Etsy except for the belt and necklace.

Don't freak, it's not real.  It's a toy .38 revolver my husband found on Amazon.  It came with two for $4.99.

I remember from the mid to late 70s my mom wore this shade of brown nail polish and lipstick.

Sabrina wouldn't have carried this type of purse as she carried simpler clutches.  But this one I just had to get because of my fond memory of this type of purse.  This handmade leather saddlebag from Mexico is just how I remember my mom's and sisters' saddlebags.  I remember we all went down to Tijuana to get them - I think it was 1977.  I was too young for a purse, so I got a marrionette instead.  I swear this purse is exactly like the ones they bought and used for years.  I also remember getting those cute little leather flip-flop key rings made of this same leather.  Like this one:  Mexico Keychain Keyring Leather MINI SANDAL

My friend R dressed as "Kelly Garrett," my friend L dressed as "Jill Munroe," and R's husband D dressed as "John Bosley."  Unfortunately, we didn't have a "Charlie"!  Here's the gang of the Original Season 1 Charlie's Angels!  Clockwise from the top:  Bosley, Sabrina, Kelly, Jill:

I had the image of "Sabrina" made into a photo button I am wearing above so people would know who I was trying to be for Halloween.  On Ebay I found "Charlie's Angels" vintage buttons for the group to wear as well.  It was fun!


  1. Wow! So cool! The gun kind of freaked me out, though. Love the purses and the whole look.

  2. You totally NAILED it! Seriously amazing! I especially dig the pants. Charlie's Angels was THE cool show when I was young, I remember running around the neighborhood pretending to be them with my friends.

    I totally love the saddle bag. It reminds me of the one my grandmother carried for a long as I remember.

    1. Thanks Pear it was really fun to put this costume together. The hardest part was to find those pants. I was ecstatic when I found them and only minor alterations were necessary. I was worried because sizes in the 70s were completely different than they are today.
