We took a look into some Oxfam bags to find out what the shoppers of Clothes Show Live had been buying from our stand.

It seems that party wear, faux fur and warm winter coats were on trend.

This is Michelle Rishton from Preston who was taking a browse through the Oxfam Shop rails. We caught up with her on her way out carrying an Oxfam bag to find out what she had bought. She explained that she now has three faux furs and just couldn't resist this one because of the colour.

Carmen Burkett works at South and City College Birmingham and was at Clothes Show helping her students. Clothes Show showcases many up-and-coming fashion designers from colleges around the country and Carmen's students were exhibiting. We chatted about her Oxfam find and she said that she loves aran knitting and this cardigan would be a great addition to her collection.

Below, is Bethany Tomkins who was trying on this jacket in the Oxfam Shop with her Mum. She said that it was the fleece style collar that caught her eye, as that would keep her extra warm over the Winter months.

With two arms full of Oxfam clothes it was hard to pin point what Jess Haines wanted to buy, her answer: "all of it!" She was going to a Christmas party and was very taken with this sequin butterfly top, from the shop's sparkle rail. She also commented: "I love Oxfam clothes, the dress I've got on now is from Oxfam." Jess left with a bag full of wonderful fashion gems.

Zahida Khan was taken with this fab Winter coat from the Oxfam Shop at Clothes Show Live. Just like Bethany above, she said that it was the collar that made her want to buy the coat, adding "I love the colour and it feels very warm."

I couldn't resist a little purchase and bought the most AMAZING long, black beaded skirt. I'm going to a 40s themed party during December but wanted to add a bit more glitz. When I got home, I tried it on over a green dress from Oxfam Hove (bought for me by the lovely Tanya Kalyan) and my housemate's 40s hat. Think I may for once, have an outift sorted in advance!
