The star/director-wife/husband team of Enid Bennett and Fred Niblo had little to work with in this wispy story of a model who longs for adventure. Marjorie Bowen (Bennett) watches with envy as the gowns she's modeling go off to the women who will be attending a ball held by a prince (Derrick Ghent). One of the shop's customers is a French woman, Yvette Fernau (Marie Pavis), who comes in with her fiancé, Sir Leeds (Geoffrey Webb). Through a conversation Leeds has with Cad Jones (Donald MacDonald), Marjorie learns there is a plot to steal some of the prince's jewels, along with some indiscreet letters he wrote to a New York society woman. When Marjorie "borrows" Yvette's gown, she is kidnapped and taken to a roadhouse, where she finds Leeds. He is actually a secret service agent, and they escape. Marjorie helps locate the jewels and the letters and returns them to the grateful prince. She also gets a marriage proposal from the equally-grateful Leeds. But unfortunately, she then wakes up -- the whole adventure was just a dream.
