Have you gone to department stores like Macys?  They have a large selection of different designers to choose from.  I like Express as well but I think they are pretty pricey.  I don’t wear suits often at all, but my most recent staple suit which I love is from a BCBG outlet store, it didn’t cost too much since it was from an outlet and had all kinds of markdowns taken on it.

Ann Taylor’s? I’m pretty sure they have suit, as well as petite sizes.

Oh, nevermind, I didn’t see your $100 limit. I don’t think AT sells blazer for less than a C note.

 

ETA: Maybe Banana Republic will have something.

Express, The Limited has great ones, Ann Taylor..I’m also petite and I find that Ann Taylor Loft’s petite selection is very good. I think I spent a little over $100 though..like $120 :-/

The Limited is where I get all my suits. I waited until they had a buy one get one 40% off sale. Also, Macy’s sometimes has really good sales on their suits. A friend of mine recently got a $300 dollar suit, vest, and jacket by Nine West for $185!

I’m petite and I found a nice suit at JCPenney on sale for less than $100.

I have to wear a suit everyday and I have found that Banana Republic and Jcrew suits hold up well. They are fairly basic but that’s usually what I need. Macy’s sales (I’ve found $500.00 suits for under $100.00) and outlets are a good place to look as well.

I second Express. I just bought a suit from there. The blazer by itself was under $100. They don’t have petite, but I just bought the pants in short, and the smallest size blazer they carry (0). It’s definitely not the nicest suit I’ve owned, but it works and I was in a time crunch. And you won’t find a suit for much cheaper.

I look at Express and Ann Taylor Outlet for my suits. I usually get mine at the Ann Taylor Outlet since it tends to be a bit more cheaper than Express (for me at least). Though, even at the Outlet I haven’t been able to get one for less than $100. It’s usually a bit over $100.

As other posters have mentioned, Ann Taylor petite sizing is great.  If you sign up to receive emails from them, you will occasionally get one for 40% off your purchase. That brings the price of a blazer under the $100 mark.

H&M

Limited

Express, (although the quality and craftsmanship is not that great)

United Colors of Benetton

BR

J.Crew

Loehmanns!!!  (great finds here)

Saks Outlet
