    What color is this dress? Or better yet what color do you see the dress as?

    My sister just showed me this 10 minutes ago! It appeared blue and black, but now I am on GBAtemp, it's gold and white. She said that it depends on your mood.

    Goldish (0x7E6D42) and a very unsaturated/pale light blue (0x8796C1).
    It actually looks so unsaturated that it looks like it is very worn out (decolored).

    ** Could also be shitty lighting.

    Very specific and refined color names, are you a graphic designer?

    You're not too far off. I don't know what burnt daffodil looks like but I'm assuming it's the top half of what I grabbed with the eye dropper tool in MS Paint to put this shit to rest.

    About to get off of Facebook because of this, don't make me get off of GBAtemp too :(

    Edit - I'm also colorblind. That said, looks like brown/purple to me based off of the colors I pulled from the image in question. Someone found the dress on a web shop, it's clearly blue/black and listed as such.

    ...it's insane how the color changes depending of how/when you see it.. I saw it as white/gold, and now I can see it as blue/darkish ...to me, the bg of the pic also helped to see it in different colors.


    Here is the original uploader of the dress image when using the thing:
