Ally & L-A  are friends who live in Halifax, NS & Kitchener, ON. They have opinions about fashion and pop culture and they want to share them with the world, whether the world likes it or not. Sometimes serious, mostly humorous, this a blog about the styles, fashions and celebrities they love and love to hate. They publish three days a week: Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, with the occasional bonus post for big events.

You can find us all over the Interwebs. We’re on the Twitter and on the Facebook. We’re even on the Tumblr. Twice.

The name of the blog is a shout out to HRM legend Joel Plaskett and his song ‘Fashionable People’. We heart Joel and we definitely heart the song.

So, exactly who are the ladies behind Fashionable People?




Halifax native, trained in PR and known for her awesome style. Part of this style comes from her tendancy towards ridiculously expensive shoe purchases. She also has the unique ability to hide said shoe purchases from her loving husband with such believable excuses as, “These? My coworker bought them for me!”. Her living room is cluttered with back copies of Vogue, Elle, Fashion and Nylon magazines. Throwing these out would result in divorce.  Her dream job is to open a second hand thrift store full of incredible designer vintage. She runs her own PR business.




She’s the only one. For reals. She’s the only Lesley-Anne Steeleworthy to ever exist because she made up her own last name. It’s also a lot of name, which is why she often goes by L-A.  Originally from Newfoundland, she calls both Halifax and California home, but currently lives in K-W, Ontario. L-A is a late bloomer who took her time to figure out what she loved to do. She’s trained as a journalist, studied identity and girlhood on television and how to be a PR pro like Ally. She currently works as the Social Media Manager with Extreme  Group, a really nifty agency in Halifax and Toronto.  She also makes and sells crafty things.

    Soooo glad to have found this site! I too obsess about fashion and have done since superstar barbie (circa 1978) couldn’t find a thing to wear on her date with Ken! I just had to help her out and make her a skirt out of a tea towel. Sigh, good times.

    Hi FPQT! I don’t know if you’ve seen the Liebster Blog Award process (it’s everywhere on WordPress) but it’s a fun way for blogs to get more exposure and connect with others who are blogging (not that you need it!) I’ve nominated your site. If you want to play, just follow the link:
