Chelie is a program associate at Council on Foreign Relations, helping to spread knowledge of international affairs to policy makers. She grew up on a farm in Pennsylvania and enjoys visiting home to be around the fields and tractors. She loves too many fandoms to count but Harry Potter started it all and is her most obsessive. Some other favorites are Avatar: The Last Airbender, Legend of Korra, Doctor Who, Star Trek, D&D, the Marvel cinematic universe, Futurama, Mass Effect, and Portal (I didn't read all these until typing them and now I think I'm in love).
Chelie has one of the most intoxicating smiles I have ever encountered. Typically at the photoshoots, my photographer, Brian, likes to remind the girls that these aren't serious model shots. We want to see how much fun our customers are having in their dresses. We like to keep the initial "oh my god i love my dress" squee throughout the shoot. With Chelie, we did not have to say that because it was impossible to wipe the smile off her face. She is just a nonstop pleasant parade of compliments and I cannot wait to make another dress for her.
Thank you Chelie for bringing joy to other people's day just by being you and for writing me one of my favorite reviews!
