Dave and Laura and the rest of the seniors at UCLA had an end of year party in a few days and she managed to convince her boyfriend Dave to come out shopping with her for a new dress.ave and Laura were walking through the Beverly Centre shopping mall on the cusp of Beverly Hills and West Hollywood. It was a beautiful Wednesday afternoon in the middle of July and most of the college students were winding down from a year of hard work.
Like most guys Dave didn’t particularly enjoy following his girlfriend round shopping. Laura would visit all the stores, try on a million things and only make her mind up at the end. However, being the cunning man he was, he agreed on the premise that he would get to pick out some new lingerie for her to wear to spice things up in the bedroom.
Laura’s phone beeped to signal a WhattsApp message from her best friend and housemate Angela. They had been good friends since the first year of college and kept it going ever since. They shared a house together in Westwood, a North Western LA neighbourhood, home to a stylish student community and a bevy of stars.
Laura clicked on the message with a photo attached.
“Hey Laurz! Just bought this black and blue dress for the party. Have you got yours yet? x”
Angela texted back. “Emmm it’s a great dress, but it’s white and gold Angie!”
“Nooo, it’s black and blue!” Laura insisted.
Laura wasn’t an argumentative person, far from it but she had an issue with Angela calling the dress black and blue, as she clearly saw it was white and gold. Her face screwed up as she wandered if Angela was winding her up or got hit with a temporary case of colour blindness.
“Babe.” Laura turned to her boyfriend Dave. “Angela just texted me a picture of a dress she bought. What colour is it?”
“It’s black and blue.”
Laura stopped, lifting her hands up slapping it on her thighs.
“Are you kidding me?” she said disappointed.
“No,” replied Dave.
“Have another look.”
Dave looked again. “Oookkk, emm. It’s clearly BLACK & BLUE. “
“No it’s not. It’s white and gold. What’s wrong with you?”
“What’s wrong with me? What’s wrong with you? How is it white and gold?”
“Because it IS!”
The Legacy Of The Dress
The dress really was an amazing, once in a lifetime, couldn’t have written it in a script type phenomenon. There’s a reason why it went viral; because it made us re-examine the nature of sight and reality, because it had the potential to cause an existential crisis for some of us. That is why I decided to write a book on it. To explore this event in greater detail, guiding you on a story, a mission and an alternate universe where the premise of the book could be an alternate reality. To drop hints and bait, to let your mind wander to answer those hard questions in an imaginary world, ‘what if?’, ‘why them?’ and ‘how come?’ to discover the truth of it all, but most importantly, to explore all these scenarios in a captivating story that does the event justice.
