While doing a little shopping in Ubud, Bali last week, Emily, Kennedy & Marie got a bit bored and restless. I made what turned out to be a brilliant suggestion: stand in the window and act like mannequins, being as still and quiet as possible.

They were delighted and took this charge very seriously – much to the curiosity and amusement (and sometimes amazement) of passersby… many of whom stopped to snap photos.

At the second shop, there was a small ledge outside where the girls could stand and pose above the sidewalk. Kennedy persuaded the shopkeeper to allow them to model some of her clutches.

What do you think – do they have a future in modeling or as mannequins? 🙂

I can’t believe how adorable that is. What a great idea. How long did they last as beautiful models?

Fabulous! I would love to have seen it. I imagine they were quite good at it! You always come up with great ideas.

I am really glad you have such great ideas. It was fun for all of us, even complete strangers! 🙂

They actually modeled the entire time we were in the store – (Jen found a really cool pair of pants in the first store, Ashley a dress in the second).

It was a riot. Especially when the asian tourists would pass by we’d see the amazement on their faces – and then out came their cameras. The girls had a blast.

Allison, you never cease to amaze me. What a brilliant idea. They look terrific and I seriously think that they could be professional models.

WOW! That is such a great idea, but I can’t seriously believe just any girl would be good at it. How adorable and serious they do look as they “model”. Thanks for sharing!

lol…the girls had such a great time doing this. You are so creative. I loved watching the expressions of the people walking by… hilarious.

We’ll definitely be using this idea again. The girls loved it and it kept them from being bored which they usually are when in a store. Thanks for the fun memories.
