Is This Purse White or Blue? Great Conundrums of Our Time

One Twitter user's purse is channeling last year's blue/black, white/gold dress debacle.

Is the purse above blue, or white? According to the bag's owner, Twitter user whyofcorso, it's blue. So off we go to the optometrist.

On Tuesday, whyofcorso introduced her shiny new Kate Spade bag to the world.

What she didn't expect was for said luxury item to incite yet another global debate as to its legitimate color. If you'll recall, a similar worldwide debate was sparked last year when one woman's dress was seen as blue and black by half the masses, white and gold by the other.

This time around, though, one little designer bag is the subject of scrutiny — much to the dismay of its owner.

After thousands of retweets and a full-fledged argument on the topic that whyofcorso didn't ask for, she eventually posted a screenshot of the purse's original sales description, proving that it is indeed "Mystic Blue." Ironic, given how so very mystifying this thing has become.

The bag looks white, but it does seem that all signs point to blue. So that's settled.

Perfect timing, because Whyofcorso is officially sick of this convo, damn it.
