The character played by star Gladys Walton mentions lavender bath salts a couple of times -- that's about the only relation the title has to the plot of this routine comedy-drama. Walton is Mayme Conroy, whose job is to model gowns in a department store window. She causes a sensation that draws the attention of rich society girl Jeanette Gregor (Charlotte Pierce). Jeanette convinces her Uncle Simon (Tom Ricketts) to allow Mayme to live with them at their mansion. Now that she is living the high life she has always dreamed of, Mayme goes one step further and pretends to be her hostess while Jeanette is away. Under this pretense, she meets and falls in love with David Bruce, a blind young man (Edward Burns). But she begins to suspect that he is a jewel thief and goes out of her way to protect her friend's belongings. Bruce, however, is really a detective, and he thinks Mayme is the thief. Her innocence -- and his -- is finally discovered and romance ensues.
