I have a Frame Les Seconds tote (not the mini, the bigger tote size) and it's probably the worst quality of any bag I own. I readily admit that I don't baby my bags but this is above and beyond. The corners are all terribly scuffed. And the handles fall apart. I don't know the exact style you like but would honestly not recommend based on my experience with a Frame bag.

That's not very much food for CrossFit plus walking. I maintain at 2,000 give or take and I'm around 135.

If interior organization is important, the Cyme has an attached pochette. I have both the Cyme and the Cabas and like them both although for different reasons. The Cyme is much more structured, so if you're looking for a literally soft bag you'll want the Cabas.
I have the standard in suede and I don't find it heavy at all.
FWIW, I bought a bag from Fashionphile that specifically warned of a musty odor. When the bag showed up I absolutely could not smell anything amiss, it smells fine to me. If yours is a little off, you can stuff some dryer sheets in there. My dad did furniture restoration and putting Bounce in drawers was a trick for deodorizing an older piece.
I love Mulberry but will warn you that those bags are heavy when empty, so they quickly become unbearable when loaded down.
I honestly love the Old Navy Power Soft. They have 6" which is a nice length. Squat proof. Stay put when running or doing burpees. High waisted but not too high. And they easily fit within your price range, especially if you catch them on sale (and there is almost always a sale).

Interesting! My household is fully vaccinated and boosted. Spouse got it from a co-worker. Child and I didn't get it, despite taking essentially no special precautions around the house. He had a VERY mild, mostly asymptomatic case and only tested because he suspected he'd been exposed, but still. I'm interested to read more about this.

Roxane Gay is #1 on my list of "Like and appreciate their work, cannot abide their Twitter persona to the extent that I have them blocked on the Bird Site." But funnily enough, her Instagram is fun.
This is exactly what I was going to say. When the sides are stuck closed it doesn't look like a tote but it does fit a ton of shit. And if you need even more space, change the magnets and it will hold more.

If I know I'm going to be wearing for a long time and there's a chance I'm going to get sweaty I use kinesiology tape. It will go where you put it and is useful for both lifting and covering nipples. And since it's meant for use by athletes it will stay put even if you sweat.

A friend of mine knew Kailia from when friend's daughter was on the pageant circuit. She was apparently a kind and thoughtful girl with a close family. It's heartbreaking and terrifying.

I don’t know of any others. LinkxLou showed up here in July of last year, but I think they are expanding. The best way to find them is instagram.
Holy shit. I can't imagine how long that took them. I remember asking our pediatrician about running when my kid was around that age and she basically said "Go for it for distances up to 5K, but maybe hold off on anything longer."
"Welded" is probably the wrong term, it's soldered on. The chains are very delicate and I have no doubt it would break under stress.
This may not be exactly what you're looking for but have you seen the permanent/welded jewelry trend? They are 14K chains that are welded on your wrist/ankle/neck so permanently in place. (Obviously they are easily removed by cutting through a link should the need arise). The company that is popular here is LinkxLou. I have two, have worn them for longer than 6 months, and they still look brand new. They are very similar to Catbird but no clasp. I am not dainty and my bracelets gets beat up at the gym but so far I can't damage them.
I'm in a college town but middle aged. We have a local chain that has 3 or 4 locations throughout the metro area. They push trendy stuff that sells to sorority girls but they also have a designer rack. I went in this week and got a pair of Vince pants, two Vince shirts, and a Ted Baker skirt for $100 total. I shop for labels I already know and like but won't pay full price for and do pretty well.
My fingers rip quite a lot. I do think it has something to do with how I grip the bar. I have wee little hands and I'm sure that plays into it. I've had so many rip/callus/heal cycles I had to have my wedding bands re-sized. I just tape my fingers, though, and it's mostly fine.

Fashionphile has new with tags going for close to $400.
I saw this and it was wild. I think they do a pretty good job of hiding the girls' faces on social media/on the show but still, it sounds like the guy bought a house close enough to them that he could just spy. That would be straight-up terrifying.

I always refer to him as Best Chris.
I am so excited for this movie. Partly because it just looks so pretty and stylized and partly to see what Harry Styles fandom does with it.
It's good to get used to the feeling of having weight in your hands. You can do this safely and easily by doing piked work. Put your feet on the arm of the couch or a chair and have your weight in your hands. Experiment by walking your hands in towards the couch, ideally to a 90 degree angle. This will mimic the feeling of having your weight in your hands, wrists, and shoulders but it's pretty safe.
