To me the question is the opposite - How in the hell does anyone NOT see gold and white?

You are all insane it is clearly blue and black.

And yet people will still insist that their perceptions accurately describe an objective reality.

Being myopic and half-deaf, I'm strongly convinced that my perceptions are... not accurate at all (even with glasses). Geek

Blue and gold, really. But I'll go with white and gold because I see no black no matter what light or angle I look at it.

I haven't really seen anybody make a big deal out of the dress thing on social media. But I have seen people make a big deal about people making a big deal out of the dress thing on social media.

I'm colorblind, so I'm used to having no idea what the color is or people look at me funny when I describe the color of something.

The true question about said dress should be: what size is it?

Can I be the first to say that, as dresses go, it isn't particularly fetching and would remain so regardless of what colour it is in reality (blue and black), in the image (pale blue and pale mustard/brown) or in people's perception (white and gold). It would be equally as ugly in any other colour combination.
What?

In the photo it's obviously white and gold, but photographed in shadow.  That's absolutely what I thought, and although I could see how people might think the white is a pale blue, there was no way the other colour could be black.  Absolutely not. 100%
Then I saw a TV news item about it, in which the reporter showed us the dress (which is undoubtedly undeniably dark blue and black - 100%) and then he put the image through filters that made it turn white and gold. 
So, it's  been tweaked with.  The actual shade of blue is darker than the shade used for Facebook, in case you haven't seen it without the tweaking.

I guess blue and black, I can't see white and gold even in the brightest picture. The gold I can see, but the blue remains... Blue, to me. At first I thought it was like those optical illusions where you can see two different things alternatively (like the cup and the faces), but no. No white for me.
