When we first saw Marc Jacobs' new heart-watch charms, our thoughts immediately went to the scariest movie of all time - The Wizard of Oz. The tick-tick-boom of Marc's necklace reminded us of the Tin Man's big reward, except smaller, cooler, and presumably less creepy. Maybe that's why Urban Outfitter's blatant copy was almost a relief to see - Instead of spotting it and immediately thinking of flying monkeys (so scary! ew!), we thought instead of Marc by Marc Jacobs, how much better their necklace was, and how much more it cost ($125 at Saks, versus $9.99) Of course, we'll need to buy the cheaper one, since The Wizard of Oz has cost us years of therapy, which have been very expensive...
