More than any other Moda designer, Vanessa Goertzen likes to mix it up with the mood of her collections.  From pretty, romantic floral collections to prints and colors that have a modern appeal, the one constant is that Vanessa isn't afraid to try something different.

Spark Plug by Vanessa Goertzen of LellaBoutique.  It's Block 51.  (That means there are only five more blocks!)
