Amateur hour: ficus edition

I'm a first time plant owner and am having some trouble with my ficus benjamina. When I first purchased it, it was beautiful and lush - picture below. Over the next couple of months, it shed almost all of its leaves - I am assuming due to shock - but seemed to be in good shape when new growth was coming in. But then I noticed the leaves coming in were very small and thin, and water was draining quickly. So about a month ago I repotted and now my ficus is completely bare. Is it shock? Am I cursed?
