About

Shari Neal Bon Bon VieLet us fill you in. This is Bon Bon Vie.

Bon Bon Vie is the creation of self-proclaimed t-shirt addict, web developer, and sometimes art director/designer Shari Neal. In 2010, she realized that she could design and wear her own stuff instead of spending her whole paycheck on t-shirts. What started as a small personal project quickly blossomed into a successful online store.

Bon Bon Vie has received acclaim in publications such as Essence.com (Essence Magazine), Rolling Out, Vibe Vixen, Clutch Magazine, and Fly, with a client list that includes Janina Gavankar (True Blood, The L Word), Issa Rae (Awkward Black Girl), Patrice Grell-Yursik (Afrobella), Nikki Walton (Curly Nikki), and model Nikia Phoenix.

Bon Bon Vie is a brand that’s accessible, positive, and created to encourage people to “live the good life.” The Bon Bon Vie lifestyle isn’t necessarily about material possessions, but rather self-love, pursuing your dreams, and celebrating your own personal joy. Bon Bon Vie is where fellow shirt addicts fulfill their graphic tee fix while receiving inspiration.
