There’s quite a bit of debate going around the Internet about what color this dress really is. This issue has literally torn apart most of our office. Tears have been shed. Things have been thrown. Is the damn dress blue and black or white and gold (or something different altogether?)

I would venture as far to say that the black is actually an olive green, and the blue is just well, blue. It isn’t white. And I will defend that to my death. Buzzfeed took a poll and 72 percent of people claim that the dress is white and gold, while only 28 percent think it’s blue and black.

What do you think? And if you need me to show you what the color white really looks like, here is a color wheel.
