“Today I bought these leopard heels that I've been eyeing since the holidays. They are having 40 percent off on top of the sale price, so now they are more than half off!” –Lindsey Foley, personal stylist J. Crew Leopard Pumps, $230
“I just bought fabulous (and very whimsical!) leggings by Doodle Pants on Zulily for $10. I love how the kids are super comfortable in them, especially now that they're transitioning to walking.” –Heidi Heinau, owner, DriedFlowerShop.com, Doodle Pants,$10.99
"As a makeup artist and a mom to three, my goal is to make every woman I work with (including myself!) look as fresh-faced and bright-eyed as possible. My favorite beauty bargain has to be Maybelline's Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting Concealer. It is extremely similar to the iconic and pricey YSL Touche Eclat, without the high price tag. My under-eye circles don't walk out of the door without it!” –JenniferDuvall, CEO,JennySue Makeup Maybelline Dream Lumi Concealer, $7
“After the holidays I decided to look for accessories on sale to shake up my wardrobe a bit. This great black and gold magnetic cuff bracelet from Michael Kors is perfect for everyday wear. It's so versatile that I can wear it with jeans and a sweater or with a cute cocktail dress. And for $129 you can't beat the price.” -Chrissy Jones,$129
“Right before the holidays, I was doing my daily perusal of Twitter, and I noticed that Williams-Sonoma was offering a one-day only discount on slow cookers. So I bought one! [Note: Don’t fret they are still on sale!] I am sad to report that the first recipe was not as delicious as I had anticipated, but I intend to keep pushing on.” - Amanda Schuon, founder,Truth Be Told, Williams-Sonoma All-Clad Slow Cooker, $150
