I am going to talk about the time I borrowed a dress from my younger sister, which happened around 6 months ago.
To be honest, I don’t really like the idea of borrowing something from someone even if they are my family members or closest friends, as I have this fear that I may lose or damage their belongings no matter how careful I am. However, 6 months ago I was under a circumstance which I had no other way than borrowing a dress from my younger sister.
I needed to buy a new dress for my cousin’s wedding. At the time my cousin made his announcement, my family were so astonished, because he informed us only 3 days in advance. Therefore, all preparations must be done in a rush.
As it was my cousin’s wedding, I wanted to purchase a new dress so that I can look stunning in that special event. I browsed through many fashion websites to look for the dress, but I couldn’t find any dresses which were to my style. Or if my eyes fell upon any dresses, those would be extremely expensive and over my budget.
A few days prior to that, my younger sister had bought a brand new gorgeous dress in a beautiful floral print and she hadn’t worn it even once. She was in a business trip overseas during the time of my cousin’s wedding so she couldn’t attend it. Therefore, I cam up with the idea to borrow her dress. It could save me a significant amount of money. I asked for her permission of this borrowing and luckily she said yes.
As I didn’t want to be an irresponsible borrower so I treated her belongings with so much care, as if it was a precious artefact. So I was kinda stressed and uncomfortable when wearing that dress in the wedding party as I had to be careful with all of my actions, with all the food and beverage in order to avoid any clothing stains. I washed and ironed the dress then returned it in a timely fashion. I did a great job with that borrowed dress.
