After Dark Gift Ideas

It’s the Holiday Season again, and it’s time to get sexy!  Gentleman and ladies, start your engines…because this gift guide is geared just for you. While a woman might feel temporarily lost or outnumbered in a sports bar, she’ll never stick out like a man in a hushed, high-end lingerie boutique. We are always so tickled every time a guy picks up a lacy little nothing and asks, “What is this…and how much did you say it cost?” In cost per square inch, lingerie is more expensive than real estate. It might seem extravagant to pay so much for things that are so small, but fabric content, craftsmanship, and country of origin are the details that count when it comes to lingerie. It’s safe to assume that lingerie she’ll really appreciate will often cost more than you expect, so get ready for sticker shock-especially if you’re the kind of guy who buys his boxers in a triple-pack for less than ten bucks. But what could fall higher on the romance continuum than giving a lovely little piece of nothing.

Ok let’s get started…with something sexy…

Sublime Assur, a sexy red bodysuit…comes with a lace mask and a lace necklace.

Happy Shopping!

Shopping Small


In honor of Small Business Saturday, we would like to reach out to all of our lovely clientele and share with you why we think, shopping, especially for lingerie is better at a specialty store rather than an amazon giant or a department store. The number one advantage of shopping small businesses is the one-of-a-kind EXPERIENCE and the curated selection of the finest lingerie the world has to offer.

The essence of human experience is almost always tucked away in a special place. The loss of direct, personal communication is forcing us to be removed and detached, to shop only black and white, to hear the same music everywhere we go and to see the same product  with a varying price.  There’s something to be said for actually feeling items, and trying them on and speaking to an expert that can guide your senses towards the perfect fit. The experience of shopping small is a cultural and social milestone and beneficiary to the American spirit and economy. So, this Saturday if you are going out to shop, stop and think: Do I want to be dazzled and charmed, and walk out feeling confident and with a great memory about my purchase or do I want to be a Black Friday statistic? Loyalty is a BIG part of the human experience.

Trick or Treat…Yourself


It’s almost the time of the year again when you have the perfect excuse to dress up however you please! Whether you’re going to the Halloween Parade here in NYC or you’re going to attend a fabulous costume party, this is the perfect time to visit a lingerie shop. Although, we always preach that you don’t need an excuse to wear lingerie we agree that this time of the year it can be much more creative.

Here are some ideas that include lingerie.

Mix It Up!


We are in the lingerie business, so it’s easy to say, but we really believe you can never have too much lingerie. You are a complicated woman who wants a lover to feel the anticipation as you slowly peel away the layers. Each time you take it off you reveal something new & exciting. Never be afraid to try something different…especially in the bedroom.

French vs. American

August in New York City is quiet and calm before the busy Fall season begins. New Yorker’s are away, and the city is crawling with tourists from all parts of the world. For us, here at La Petite Coquette, we get quite the European following, especially the French. They can’t wait to come in here and check out the latest sexy, frilly, lacy lingerie trends. And so, our coquettes are busy helping and fitting the perfect bra or lingerie.

American women mostly want a very basic nude or black bra with an occasional sheer or lace (if they have a hot date or a private sex party to attend). French women, on the other hand, ALWAYS want a sexy lacy, or a sheer bra. We have tried to offer them a nude or black basic bra…”I would never”, they exclaim with confidence! So we wonder, why do so many American women shy away from the sexier bras,  and almost all French women wouldn’t be caught dead in what we consider an everyday “t-shirt” bra.

Is the American woman too conservative, too busy or too afraid to show off her sexuality? Or is it a stylistic choice; they want to have the seamless, “clean line” look. And the French; what makes the French woman so sexy and alluring, and so completely open to the idea of wearing silk, lace, ribbons and bows, as an everyday bra. Are European women more comfortable with their sexuality? Or is it simply that the American woman is more contemporary and less traditional? Hmm…what do you think, just a thought.
