Synopsis

When Mabel Ainsworth finds her husband, Garry, buying lingerie that he will not explain, she obtains a Paris divorce. Later, she learns that the purchase was to have been an anniversary present, embroidered with her name, and she follows him back to the States, there finding him posing as a single man. While being pursued by Leonard Mason, she determines to win Garry back. At a party given by Jimmy Larchmont, Mabel pretends not to recognize Garry, who is now being vamped by Sylvia Wells; Mabel plants evidence to arouse the suspicions of her rival and thus put Garry on the spot. Sylvia finds Mabel's chemise, which Hawkins, the butler, has stolen, in Garry's pocket; she faints and is taken to Mabel's room, where Garry is hiding under the bed. Following a series of mixups and misunderstandings, Mabel retrieves her chemise, and finding that their divorce has not been validated, Mabel and Garry decide to remain married.
