Dress designer Natalie Upton has been having an affair with married architect Larry Baldwin for three years. Larry's wife Lois is interested only in social success and completely ignores Larry's interest in construction. Natalie, on the other hand, encourages and inspires Larry. When Natalie learns that her brother Clarke is returning from Paris, she tells Larry that they can no longer meet in her apartment. Natalie's friend, Linkhorn Gibson, known as Link, who is also in love with her, offers Clarke a job as an architect in his firm. Natalie turns down Link's invitation to a party at the Baldwins', but is surprised to find that Clarke has his own invitation. Natalie learns that Clarke met Larry's daughter Doris in Paris and is in love with her. Now that Doris is making her debut, Larry decides to ask Lois for a divorce. He tries to explain his actions to Doris, who is very upset, and when she learns that the other woman is Natalie, she runs from the room. After refusing to give Larry a divorce, Lois visits Natalie's shop to "have a look at her." When Natalie arrives home, she finds Doris there, waiting to beg her to break up with her father. Explaining that she and Clarke are engaged to be married, Doris insists that, to avoid scandal and humilation, Natalie and Larry must end their affair, and Natalie agrees. Clarke overhears Natalie end her relationship with Larry, and misunderstanding the nature of their arrangement, leaves the apartment, vowing to pay back the money he thinks Larry spent on his education. Clarke leaves the country, returning Natalie's letters and refusing to write to Doris. When Larry's building is opened, he thanks the woman who supported him, and only Natalie knows that he is referring to her. Clarke returns from South America, but still refuses to forgive Natalie. By accident he meets Doris in a nightclub and chases after her. Doris is so upset that she wrecks her car. Unable to reach Lois, Larry calls Natalie, who rushes to be with him while Doris is in danger. Shaken by the accident, Clarke forgives Natalie and he and Doris marry. When Link later proposes to Natalie, she tells him about her love for Larry. Unselfishly, Link convinces Lois to obtain a divorce and calls Larry with the good news.
