Madame Loisel just wishes that she would be able to live more of a luxury life when her and her husband get invited to a party.
Being apart of the middle class, Loisel doesn't have many nice things to wear to this party. She must go shopping to find something to wear that night.
Madame Loisel is having issues with having what she wants and believing in herself. All she wants is to be a part of the upper class and she is hoping that she can move up after this party.
Madame Loisel is at the party with her husband and has the best night of her life.
After the party, Madame Loisel realizes that her necklace that she borrowed for the event has gone missing. She retraces her steps, but can not seem to find it anywhere.
Many years later the women that met before the party meet again. Madame Loisel reveals that she had lost the necklace and got a new one to replace it. As well the woman mentions that the necklace that was lost was fake and worth very little money.
