The New Elegance - Back in the days

I was able to get a sneak peak on the H&M The New Elegance Collection and was allowed to style some looks. 
I'm already looking forward to wear these very elegant and sophisticated pieces in autumn. 
They inspired me to create a much more elegant look. I feel like I'm back in the days when my mum was as old as I am now. So nice to see that styles are coming back again in a new modernized way.

Romantic Lace Outfit

I hope you had a wonderful weekend. 
I fell in love with the Chloe lace dress a few months ago. I finally found one online which matches my interpretation of the perfect lace dress. I paired it with my favorite accessories. I'm currently wearing those sandals 24/7. And my leather jacket is never missing as well. 
With the biker jacket I broke the romantic look to not let it get too girly.

Boho Summer meets Brigitte Bardot.

A bohemian inspired look to start into the weekend. 
I am heading to Lucerne to enjoy the blueballs festival. One of my ten reasons why you should visit this lovely city. 
We were inspired by the look of the young Brigit Bardot. More pictures will follow soon.

Fast Fashion - A Fashion Bloggers Role and Responsibility.

As I was part of a little Video Interview for NZZ, a local daily. I want to take the opportunity and share some thoughts about the ongoing phenomena of fashion blogging.

Find here the link to the video(it is in german but if someone wants a little overview I will translate it for you)

There are three topics coming up on which I want to give a comment.

The short documentary is about bloggers who support the fast fashion movement with their business. They keep inspiring the young to buy a lot and therefore cheap fashion.
I am very critical if it comes to that. I am aware of the fact that people (hopefully) find some inspiration in my outfits and might want to recreate them. But never forget that blogs can also be inspiring to combine your pieces in a new way. I always try to make clear no one needs tons of stuff to be well dressed. Readers who follow my blog will realize that most of my pieces pop up a lot of times and I play with basics.
I always suggest to invest in basics and accessories so you can combine it differently. On top it is very important that every one by himself knows that we should buy responsible.
As I am doing the blog as an inspiration I try to find the right balance. But Bonsoir Cherie does not claim to be an only fair trade Fashionblog. Just because right now there is such a lack of fair produced fashion. The best possibility is to check labels and to avoid overbuying. But unfortunately this is very difficult and furthermore very expensive. I really hope there will be an improvement in the near future especially concerning working conditions.
If I write about how fashion can be  inspiring I never forget about the problems behind.

The issue of collaborations comes up in the video as well.
Why do brands work with bloggers? Most of us are all over. On blogspot, facebook, twitter, instagram we post images every day. They have become much more important the last years. Big companies will work with bloggers to improve their visibility, to be cool and independent and just because others do. We deliver nice pictures in a comparable short amount of time. And you can chose your influencers very well according the brand. We are fast sharing.
Many of uf get presssamples and yes sometimes you don't know what to do with it. But if you communicate with the agencies you can join forces and both sides will be happy because only the right products for the own blog will be presented. Therefore you have an honest opinion about a product and there will be no "wasted" press samples. And if there is something which is not pleasing you - you can always gift it to someone who really likes this special product.
This is the way I try to do it.

One topic which is really very important to me is the reality of blogging. Most of us only show the sunny side of life. So do I.
I was a bit scared when people started asking if I am nonstop on holiday and not working at all.
Suddenly I realized that this world on instagram is taken for granted.
Of course there are real pictures. But these are only rare and beautiful moments.
Few people will share the wakeup call in the morning, or tons of work they need to finish, or the bad mood. I am also more motivated to spread some positive and cheerful pictures.
But of course there are difficult moments in my life often enough. Just like in everyones life.

For me blogging was something I wanted to do to get a little step closer to the dream to work in the fashion industry. Just because I am into it due to different reasons. I use the blog as a platform to practice all these things you might need later on. Doing styling, shootings and of course to get closer to the community. Like a playground.
And suddenly if you were patient enough there will be inquiries from brands which want to work with you. That was an amazing moment to be honest. Is there anything better than to hear from someone he likes what you do?
That's what cooperations are about. The Appreciation by brands or people behind a brand.

I hope to inspire people to follow their goals and dreams and not just to buy more stuff. Do the most out of what you've got. If it is about life in general or just about styling your dress.

So with that I hope you can follow my blog and others with an open mind and enjoy the fun and inspiring part but always keep in mind that this is not how life looks like. But more an idea what we like to imagine ourselves.

You can find the look we shot on this day with a little teaser about todays words here:
The essence of fashion blogging.

I'd appreciate your feedback.

Marine Stories

We spent the weekend shooting at the lake. After a little thunderstorm in the early morning we had perfect conditions to create a little marine story which I will share with you the next days.. 
If you need some inspiration for upcoming holidays or maybe a sailing trip don't miss to check it out. 

A big thanks to the amazing team!

The essence of fashion blogging.

The header is actually teasing more than I'd reveal for now. l tell you more about the story behind this look very soon. 
One thing in advance - the only reason why I keep doing this is passion. 
Otherwise I'd given up a long time ago. No free beauty sample or gifted clothes could make me doing this. If I would count all the hours I've spent for the blog the last years after my daily job and studies and think about how much I must have earned if I would have been spending them on a 'real job' my bank account would look pretty nice..
As it is always a challenge to combine blogging, daily job and private life I will start sharing some thoughts from time to time. To break out a little bit out of this clean and well photographed life which is always presented on the blog. 
Next week there will be more. You will see a little interview I did for a local daily about blogging and the responsibility of all of us if it is about fast fashion.

For once I share a look which is a bit more layered as some of my previous Tel Aviv Looks.
I really like the biker leather pants combined with the very special cut of the jacket.
My current fashion love is the Rebecca Minkoff bag - although I thought the bag is much bigger when I ordered it, I am really very happy. It has the ideal size to become your daily companion.
The look is quite more for autumn - but as you never know what the weather's like in Switzerland you can easily wear such a look in July.

Thank you Bellemelle for taking the pictures.

Bonsoir Chérie's summer wishlist - Fashion Confessions

I want to share some of my most recent fashion crushes with you. The ones who know me can tell that I own a numerous amount of (sun)glasses. You can always get another one. This is really one of my weak points if it is about purchasing fashion items. 

A current fashion trend also totally won my heart. I am absolutely in love with those roman sandals. I could wear them wherever I are. Thinking about some heels as well - I checked out the ones from Schutz shoes - love at first sight.  Today I'm gonna share my favorite flat ones.
Have a nice evening everyone!
What about you? Any summer fashion confessions?

Forever Young or Sweet Sixteen

After shooting this outfit we went to a nice garden place in Zurich called "Frau Gerolds Garten". I joked about ordering a beer and the guy next to me asked if I am old enough to drink one. 
So I am looking forward to the days when I am really getting older and people keep guessing my age completely wrong. Cheers to the youth. So I am totally "back to school" with this look. 
I love the colorful jacket. This is what it looks like when fashion is fun. 

Hope you are enjoying these summers days as much as I do. Even if there is a lot going on I think one can always find time for a relaxing moment. As you could read in a previous post I often head to my hometown lucerne to take a break. It is just perfect to recharge the batteries on our beautiful lake and enjoying some time off with friends. This is the reason why the blog is a bit calmer now. But there are big news ahead on the weekend - I'll keep you posted.

Tel Aviv Diary III - Bohemian Summer Look

I love it when trends keep coming back. These shorts are in my closet for at least two years now and were never worn. As the Bohemian style comes back almost every summer I took it as an inspiration for this look. I combined my shorts with a embroidered top and my beloved gladiator sandals for a summer look to go out for dinner in Tel Aviv. 
It is like a dream that we have the same temperatures now in Switzerland. It allows you to finally wear all the dresses. I keep searching for the lightest stuff in the mornings to not melt - but I am so happy about our 35 degrees. Don't want to complain. 

Right now I am just on the way back from a short trip to Montreux Jazz Festival. We had the chance to listen to Damien Rice thanks to Cîroc. I always wanted to attend the Jazz Festival and today I finally managed. Together with my girl from Bellemelle I had an amazing weekday getaway. Follow me on instagram @bonsoircherieblog or on Facebook to get some insights! 

I wish you a nice evening and have a good week!

Tel Aviv Diary - The perfect Brunch place

We have some amazing weather here in Switzerland - that's why I'm gonna shorten up this post and just share one of my favorite summer looks with you. 
We shot these pictures in Tel Aviv while waiting for our spot in the Brunch place Benedict at Rothschild Boulevard. They have some amazing pancakes with coconutmilk and bananas and overall the greatest menu for brunch ever. You can spot it in my pictures.. 

If you happen to be in Tel Aviv you should go there for sure. But try to avoid going there on the weekends otherwise you'll have to wait for ages. 

I'm off to the only right place for a day like this - heading to the lake. Have a nice weekend!
