I received a $150 gift card from Nordstrom over the holidays. Given my adoration for the retailer, I was grateful, and well, ecstatic. Shoes and basics are what I buy most from Nordstrom, so I have my eyes set on those departments specifically. Yes, the of-the-moment Gazelles are on my list. On that note, I thought it could be fun to round up a list of affordable items I think are best at Nordstrom right now to provide you with any shopping inspiration. 

Basically, if one of my friends had a $150 gift card, I'd suggest the first three items in the list below to start. If you keep scrolling, you'll find a range of other affordable items that I think are versatile, chic, and could instantly elevate a wardrobe.
