Here’s the story: Tumblr user Whoa wow wow snapped the above pic while shopping for a dress to wear to an upcoming wedding (oh, bless her heart), and when she sent it to her girlfriends some saw white and gold, some saw blue and black. She then posted it to the Tumblr community, pleading: “Guys please help me – is this dress white and gold, or blue and black? Me and my friends can’t agree and we are freaking the fuck out.” Thousands replied and within hours the dress was all over Tumblr, had spawned a BuzzFeed poll and countless celebrities started to weight in on Twitter:

What color is that dress? I see white & gold. Kanye sees black & blue, who is color blind?

Meanwhile, Taylor Swift is CERTAIN that the dress is blue & black:
I don’t understand this odd dress debate and I feel like it’s a trick somehow. I’m confused and scared. PS it’s OBVIOUSLY BLUE AND BLACK
