Buzzfeed has a story that says it isn't necessarily the 'rods and cones' in your eyes as much as it is how your how your brain processes the light that is coming into your eyes.

Meanwhile, various celebrities have also been chiming in on whether the dress was white and gold or blue and black.

For the record, I kind of combined them both -- to me it looked like a picture of a light blue dress with gold trim!

What do you think?
