Q&A With Lily Montasser
I get inspiration by people random people I see on the street. A skater kid’s massive hoodie. A surfer crossing the street with messy hair and minimal makeup. A girl at a bar with leather jacket and a sleek middle part. I like to pluck inspiration and styles from all types of people.
How did you get into being an influencer?
When I was in college I did a bunch of editorial internships at fashion magazines. I studied creative writing, and I thought I wanted to go into fashion writing. But after I graduated college I thought: maybe instead of working for a magazine, I try to be one myself?
What does your day to day morning routine look like?
I try to wake up early. I have a cup of hot water with lemon, and then meditate for ten minutes. Then I’ll make some coffee and go through all my emails in the morning before heading to the gym. I like to get my admin work done in the morning so I can shoot and go to meetings in the afternoon.
Where is your home town? & Wheres the best place to brunch?
I’m from Carmel, California. My favorite brunch spot is anything Australian: Bluestone Lane, Five Leaves, and Banter are my go-to’s in NYC.
Favourite 4th & Reckless piece and how do you style it?
I love all the 4th & Reckless oversized blazers. I’d wear it with trousers and sneakers for a tomboy-chic look. Or with a slip dress and thigh high boots for a night out.
