After winning a Charleston contest, Missouri gal Alberta Vaughan heads to Broadway, hoping to achieve stardom. Landing a job as a cabaret chorus girl, our heroine takes the advice of one of her bosses, who suggests that she has to put up a good "front" to impress potential employers. To that end, she rents a fancy apartment with expensive furnishings, paying on the installment plan. But another of her bosses, certain that his partner merely wants to set up a "love nest" to seduce the girl, withdraws his okay on her charge accounts, and soon Vaughan is deeply in debt. The collection agency strips Vaughan of her belongings, including her fancy clothes, forcing her to appear on the cabaret stage in her undies. At this point, the boss who cancelled Vaughan's accounts realizes that he's been a jerk, and offers to marry the girl -- though why she accepts is anyone's guess, since her underdressed dance act is the hit of the show!
