Madame Loisel would spend her days dreaming about how luxurious her life would be with if she was more rich, and think about how unhappy she is.
Oh my god, where is the necklace !
Madame Loisel's husband brought home an invitation to the palace of the Ministry dance.
Okay, no problem.
Madame Loisel went to her friend Madame Forestier because she needed to borrow jewelry to go with her dress. She fell in love with this diamond necklace.
Now I know the true meaning of being poor.
Madame Loisel was having the night of her life, until she realized she lost the diamond necklace.
Instead of telling Madame Forestier the truth, madame Loisel lied and told her the clasp broke. She need to buy some time to get the money to buy a necklace to the replace the lost necklace.
The clasp broke, so when I get it fixed I will give it back to you.
Madame Loisel had to give up their privileged life and she finally realized that her life wasn't as bad as she thought. She had to get a job and her husband had to get multiple jobs to pay off the debt of the necklace. For ten years she spent everyday working and aging eventually, she found out that the necklace was fake. She worked all those years for nothing.
