Welcome to Whale Week 2013, our celebration of the city's biggest spenders.
As you may have noticed by now, we're one day into our first-ever Whale Week. Since there are so many different requirements to being a whale—from what bag you carry to where you get your blowout—we've whipped up three handy guides.
There's one for the uptown whale, who likes to wear her wealth visibly on her wrists and feet; the downtown whale, who piles on multiple high-end contemporary brands all at once; and the Brooklyn whale, who spends her fortune on her baby, backyard dog, and Linda Farrow sunglasses. Consult the gallery above for definitive guides.
