Despite all the rain and the mud you stylish festival goers were out in force last weekend. From men rocking flowers in their hair to women with the radest 1940's 'dos ever - we bring you our favourite looks straight from the fields of the Isle of Wight. 

Paul Oliver from Salisbury gets 10/10 for his wax jacket from Oxfam, and we loved the way Chelsea Emms wore her mixed prints

We stopped Steve Simpson from Cerne Abbas in our festival shop because we were all jealous of his fab coat! 

Check out this blog post to find out why we're all such big fans of a retro blouse, these were both found in charity shops. 


Sarah Sweeting from Leamington Spa @sarahsweeting - we loved that Sarah was brave enough to rock red lips at a festival, what a star. Lisa Reading from Oxford @lisamreading - showing of her prowess for a bargain as she got most of her festival clothes from ebay. 

@TheThreeBelles are a 1940s vocal trio inspired by the Andrews Sisters. We were inspired by their individual and beautiful voices! 

Unfortunately we couldn't capture everyone's names. If you spot your picture on our blog please tweet us @OxfamFashion so we can let everyone know!
