Silly Puzzle

Anita has 2 friends Sheila and Rita and Anita borrowed Rs. 1000 from Sheila and Rs.500 from Rita. Now out of Rs. 500 she bought a dress of Rs. 300. Accidentally she lost Rs.1000 somewhere. Then she returned Rs 100 to Sheila and Rs 100 to Rita means she has to return Rs 1300 in total to both, Rs.900 to Sheila and Rs.400 to Rita and obviously she had done shopping of Rs.300. So total Rs.1300+Rs.300=Rs.1600...........But she had borrowed only Rs 1500 ,,,,,how???????

She bought a dress for 300 and lost 1000 which sums up to 1300(thats the total amount spent) which is exactly equal to the amount she has to return to both rita and sheila.
