Hello Everyone, my name is Josh Liggett, and I run BePreciousClothing.com. Recently, Rachel handed over the reins of Funky Frum to us at Be Precious, and we will be opperating the site from now on. We at Be Precious also wanted to wish Rachel the best in all her future endeavors.
If you are familiar with BePreciousClothing, you know that we are dedicated to providing you with modest clothing that is within the confines of "modesty," while maintianing lots of style and fashion. The same will be true with FunkyFrum, which will feature some products that we are very excited about!
Here is a little snippet about Be Precious:
Be Precious™ was started in 2007 by Josh Liggett and is a family run business. Josh's parents, Andy and Beverly, have been in the clothing business for over 25 years, and currently own and operate L.A. Movers™ (Including Scrambled Girls™, Ferocious Chick™, Perpetual Motion™, and Bev™).
Recently, the Liggett family realized that with changing fashion trends, there is a lack of fashionable modest clothing. Over time, it has become more and more difficult for woman of all ages to stay in style while maintaining their modesty.
So, Be Precious™ was created, taking the fashionable styles used by L.A Movers and making them modest. Not only do our products cover all the places necessary to be modest, but also are in the "spirit" of modesty.
So come and join the Be Precious Family and see how you can maintain your modesty while staying in style.
“At Be Precious, we're not trying to make fashionable clothing modest. We're trying to make modest clothing fashionable.”
-Josh Liggett, CEO,
Be Precious Inc.

On our last buying trip to New York we met with Leah Weisz, head designer for A Vitzu Original. A young designer with a fresh new line, Leah wowed us with her work. Funky accents and great trims make her tops really special and we had to have them! Check out our A Vitzu Original tops - Treasure, Lady Godiva, and Red Label.
With tops as unique as these, we knew there would be a great
woman behind them! We asked Leah to introduce herself and the line to our chic
shoppers… and here’s what she had to say!
How did you come up with the name A Vitzu Original?
Vitzu's my middle name!
Where are you from and how did you get into fashion?
I was born and raised in Columbus, Ohio. I have always loved fashion and started designing my own clothing when I was in high school. I felt there was a need for cool, funky, and modest clothing for everyday. I was sick of the typical Jewish look - consisting of the long black skirt and the same shirts that we all see. So, when I was in college, I decided to pursue my dream.
What inspires your line?
Many things inspire my line including different fabrics, trends, and designs.
What’s the biggest challenge you face when designing?
My biggest challenge is putting together fabrics and designs that flatter all body types. I really want every woman to feel confident and happy when she's wearing a Vitzu.
How would you best describe A Vitzu Original?
I hope that Vitzu branches to everyone who wants to dress modestly. It's fun, original, and different!
