Inspiring women to show up as their best selves through Pre-loved fashion
Let's face it. When we look good, we feel good. It's that simple. It's not narcissism. It's real.
MEET THE FOUNDER
A dreamer, doer, and fashion lover. Welcome to the world of La Cocaigne (pronounced cocaine like the drug - more on that later!). I'm an American living the Parisian life. Like any good Parisian, I shop for my dinner at those famous outdoor markets, ride a bicycle down Boulevard Saint-Michel, and sip cappuccinos at outdoor cafes - adopting the art of slowing down (aka - le pause). I'm also a stylist, mother, and entrepreneur. Life is real here; laundry, bills, pre-teen drama, and French bureaucracy.
My gifting is helping women become their best selves through fashion. I do this with second-hand luxury clothing. Seeing women transform from a closet full of clothes, "having nothing to wear" to a state of ease and mindful purchasing is the best gift I can ever ask. I teach women how to build a wardrobe that works for their current life and style. Ultimately, letting go of unused clothes and setting women on a better path emotionally and financially. The bonus, she shares her new clothes shopping ways with other women and passes her habits on to the next generation.
Like most transformation, my style and shopping habits were not always intentional. I was a clothes addict; half my closet I barely wore, accumulating fast-fashion, feeling guilty and dissatisfied, plus racking up the debt to remind me of the waste. After my move to Paris - I started to teach women what I learned through my failed mis-steps and accomplishments. My clients become like sisters. We no longer fret over what to wear and only own pieces we love. We get to wear high-quality brands that have value and give us joy.
La Cocaigne offers a better way - helping women to have freedom to change and express themselves, however they want through fashion. We make luxury clothes more attainable and getting dressed everyday, pleasurable.

What women Say About
Leticia & LA COCAIGNE
" Leticia's second-hand shopping thing - is my new obsession."
“I was skeptical about second-hand shopping but after my styling session with Leticia - I am convinced this is the only way to buy clothes now.”
“I loved finding unique luxury pieces with Leticia in Paris. She knew exactly where to find collector items from Chanel and Hèrmes, that I was looking for. "
“The shopping tour was the highlight of my Paris vacation. Leticia took me to places I would have never discovered on my own. I could hang out with her all-day.”
“After ten months, I’m still thrilled over how easy it is to get dressed in the morning. Plus, the organization of my closets. Not to sound dramatic - but it is life changing! I stopped wasting money on clothes I didn't love. And, now I'm able to buy designer quality pieces at a fraction of the price."
We've seen it dozens of times. That look, that says, come again, I didn't quite hear you. We repeat, "La Cocaigne, pronounced cocaine like the drug." They smile. We explain.
