It's day two at the Isle Of Wight festival and we've been having a great time browsing the rails of the Oxfam Festival Shop. Guys and gals have been coming in and out of the shop, buying great bargains and snapping up some brilliant festival essentials. We couldn't help ourselves but ask to take a peek inside some fashion-lover's bags to see what they'd bought.

First up was the lovely Sara who snapped up a fab denim jacket, what do you all think? She said: "I love charity shops! It's great that you can get stuff like this jacket that's just too expensive anywhere else."

The bubbly Sarah was equally as happy with her Oxfam Festival Shop purchase- this beautiful patterned flower off-the-shoulder dress, which is lightweight and comfortable- perfect for the festival season!

White is a big trend this year and has been a big hit in the Oxfam Festival Shop. Alisha Greatorex nabbed this fab Topshop embroidered piece too. "Isn't it gorgeous!?" she squealed when she showed us.

Another big trend and an essential for the UK festival season are jumpers- we met Gemma, who treated herself to this fab navy jumper.

Bought this morning from the Oxfam Festival Shop, Laura wasted no time in putting her purchases straight on! The monochrome/neon mix is a hit trend for this summer and looks so great on her. She didn't stop there either- Laura also treated herself to this floral patterned gypsy dress too.

Also from the Model 1 crowd, Jade McSorley was thrilled with her handmade blanket. Each one is 'made with love' by Oxfam volunteers and keen knitters who donate them to Oxfam.
