The dress appears Gold and Blue to me.  According to Photoshop the Gold is R-112, G-102, B-77; and the Blue is R-126, G-138, B-167.  The color picker indicates Gold and light Blue.  The dress appears the same colors on my calibrated and profiled monitor, and on my iPhone 6.  Does anyone else see Gold and Blue?

This Ford Tri-Motor is on static display at the San Diego Air and Space Museum.  I made a panorama consisting of 5 photos using my Fuji X-E1 and Fuji 55-200 lens.  I then precisely removed the airplane from its background using the Pen Tool in Photoshop.  Finally, I  made a composite with a photo of clouds from my library.  This is part of my Return to Flight series.

I was taking photos of the playground equipment in the new Waterfront Park at the San Diego County Administration Center when a security guard stopped me and asked what I was doing. I smiled and said that I was an amateur photographer taking pictures. He said that some of the people are "uncomfortable" with photography around their children. I said that I was a parent and that I understood, but that does not mean I cannot take pictures. He agreed and I thanked him and continued taking pictures.
It is not uncommon to be "uncomfortable" with other people exercising their first amendment Constitutional Rights, and photographing in public is a Constitutional Right. (See Comment below). I am "uncomfortable" with anyone interfering with my Constitutional Rights.
On a lighter note, if you follow the link to my pictures, you will find a sea gull which landed close to me and began squawking and flapping its wings testing the constitutionality of aggressive pan handling!
