Me: Would you like to tell my readers a little bit about yourself?
Breanne: I'm a singer/songwriter from Minneapolis, MN. I have been playing music and performing most of my life and have spent the past 2+ years on tour as part of the Owl City live show. I released a solo EP last spring and am currently working on a full length album!
Me: Every time I see a picture or video of you (or see in person like at the Owl City concert I had the pleasure of attending) you always look so cute! How would you describe your fashion style?
Breanne: Thank you very much! I like balancing feminine and flirty with touches of sparkle and personality.
Me: I love the vintage inspiration in your look. Do you wear lots of authentic vintage or do you stick the new, but vintage inspired stuff?
Breanne: I have a few authentic vintage pieces, but for tour I mostly wear vintage inspired clothes.
Me: Can you name three people who have influenced your style?
Breanne: Zooey Deschannel, Corinne Bailey Rae, and Joy Williams from The Civil Wars
Me: What are your favorite places to shop at?
Breanne: I love Anthropologie and Urban Outfitters, and of course finding great deals at thrift stores or Nordstrom Rack! :)
Me: I once heard someone say that everyone has a signature thing (i.e red lip stick, or head bands) that everyone associates with them. I like to think that mine would be headbands or fuchsia lipstick since I love them and wear them lots. What do you wish people would think of when they think of you and your fashion style?
Breanne: My staple for performing is a cute dress. I repeatedly sport sparkles and a half-up, "poofed" hair-do!
Me: If you don’t mind me asking, are you one of those gals (like me) who who love doing their hair and make up and spend a while in the morning doing it, or are you more of the type to do the bare minimum and get on with your day?
Breanne: It depends on where I'm going! If I'm going out, I love to spend time on my hair and makeup (getting ready is half the fun!) The rest of the time, I'm usually wearing my glasses and have my hair pulled back!
Me: I always feel so happy whenever I wear teal, fuchsia pink or bright red. Do you have any colors you just love to wear?
Breanne: I LOVE cherry red! I think it looks nice with my dark hair and fair skin.
Me: Does your style in music videos or when you’re preforming differ at all from how you dress on just a regular old day?
Breanne: Definitely. I love to dress up for performances, but my everyday style is more casual.
Breanne: I still enjoy skirts and tights for an everyday look, but I'll dress it down with a something like a sweater and rain boots.
Me: How does touring and all the packing required figure into how you dress when you’re not preforming?
Breanne: When I'm not performing, I'm dressed very casual on tour. If I'm on an all-day flight or exploring a new city (on foot!) before a show, comfortable clothes and shoes are a necessity!
Me: Speaking of touring what’s it like working with Adam Young?
Breanne: It's great! Everyone on tour is wonderful and we're like one big family. The relationships are very sibling-like.
Me: I heard you have a new full length album coming out soon? As someone who loves your EP, is there anything you can tell us about your album?
Breanne: The album will definitely branch out more, both musically and lyrically. I've learned and grown a lot over the past year and will have more time to tell my story on the full length album.
Well, I think that’s about it. :) Thank you so much for taking the time to answer all my questions! I’ve had a lot of fun getting to drill you about your absolutely lovely style. ♥
And for the rest of you can download Breanne Duren's EP, Sparks, on iTunes, watch the music video for Gold Mine and No One Else on YouTube, and keep up with what she's up to on her blog.
Thanks for taking the time to read this everyone. This was so much fun for me. See you tomorrow for with another outfit from yours truly!
