Storyline

Since her marriage, Ethel has become very careless about her personal appearance, while Steve, her husband, is fond of dress. One day Steve telephones that he is bringing Ernest, a former sweetheart of Ethel's, home for dinner. He suggests that she powder her nose, and this piques Ethel. When the two men arrive, Ethel, in a made-over gown, meets them. Ernest is profuse in his compliments and arouses the jealousy of Steve. The next day, without phoning Ethel, he brings Ernest home again and finds her a forlorn-looking sight. Ernest soon finds an excuse to leave. Ethel is very angry. She goes to the phone, orders three or four gowns and tickets for the opera, then makes Steve take her to supper afterwards, and they ride in a taxi. She looks stunning in her now gown and Steve realizes that "clothes make the woman." Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
