Autumn is the cosiest of all seasons. I love spending a rainy afternoon curled up in the sofa with a chunky blanket and a hot cup of tea, having a movie marathon, which if I'm being perfectly honest, I have on a regular basis.
I consider myself an eclectic, when it comes to defining my taste in movies. I love almost every type of genre but if I had to pick one specific type of movies to watch for the rest of my life, I would definitely choose vintage films: anything from the '40s, '50s and '60s.
That's why today I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to open the Faërie Lifestyle Vault and take a look back at my favourite vintage films of all time.
