Review: Stitch Fix #11 (or the one after a very long break)

Let's pretend it hasn't been exactly one month since I've posted and just dive into this Stitch Fix order.

uberX has arrived in Baltimore! I'm obsessed with Uber, the car service where you get a fancy-schmancy car/SUV sent to pick you up wherever you are.
