Yes, believe it or not, the colors of my college alma mater are lavender and black (and now you can all Google to figure out where I went to college).
The short black skirt is from Kmart's Attention line in January 2011; the lavender satin blouse is by Forenza, a thrift shop find in July 2015; the shoes are the oldest pair I own, black mary-janes by Isaac Mizrahi, from Target in November 2007. Other accessories are a pastel bow, black-and-white jewelry, and natural hose.
