Playtime With Ragdoll: Gold Digger

Illustration by Carol Chavana. fashion blogger Carol Chavana is a twenty something designer who apprenticed under Betsey Johnson.  One of her creative outlets she enjoys doing is putting together weekly “playtime” photoshoots with her “ragdoll” friends.  She searchers the internet for inspiration, sketches her visions, wrangles her friends for shopping excursions, and makes sure that her brother, Thomas Chavana, clears his schedule to take photos —  all in an effort to turn her visions into reality.

This Playtime with Ragdoll shoot is a cheeky take on “gold diggers.” Everything we are wearing in these photos are available for purchase, for inquiries email us at

Our first shoot consisted of Carol and I in vintage dresses lounging on a simple worn white couch, illustrating that gold diggers want to have it all but don’t just yet.

Actress Kelsey Tipton joined us for the second part where Carol included two of her dresses from her Caral Chavana collection.

Carol and Kelsey are both in Carol Chavana. Carol’s gold dress has a corset on top and the bottom is more of a peplum design.  The other dress Carol created, worn by Kelsey, mixes gold sequins with black velvet and includes a fun big black velvet bow.

I am in an Armani white shirt, found at Goodwill (Carol is a goodwill-aholic) and a basic gold sequin skirt.
