O__O;

I made my first (and favorite) pair out of some socks. Talk about designer.

Wow.

Melanie said...

I'm sure you could make it better then they could ever think it.

Orrrr, you could totally throw it old school and go into dior, guns a'balzin' with Billy the kid at your side, and hold them up. That's always an option. Although you'd have to get through security first.

Natalie said...

just cut some holes in wooly socks, sweetie.

-n. said...

i wish it were still winter here.

Gabe Saporta, or not... said...

What so you're ditching your old blog to write here? Fineeeee Peturrrr.
I'm only joking ;)
Any update, no matter where, is good

Dior arm warmers. The two things just don't seem to go together in my head.

My black wooly arm warmers are one of my favourite things in winter. They were cheap as chips from Sportsgirl, but i love them to bits.

AgentJane said...

um...target? walmart? some little shop in north park? how much are these dior arm warmers? good GOD. probably my biweekly salary i'm guessing. ;)

caller-337 said...

They're stunning.

Maybe find someone whom can track them down for you? You must be able to order them in. I know you can order in current collection handbags at the Dior store here so I don't see why not arm warmers? Unless it's a limited collection then 12 is probably realistic sadly.

linnea said...

don't you have any old relative that can knit maybe they can do a pair for you and at the same time ad your personal stile to them.
I've two pairs that my grandma did for me.

Maegan said...

when i think of arm warmers....dior arm warmers at that, the first word i think of wouldn't be "insane". i can't decide if your over-use of that word either intrigues, bothers or frightens me, monsieur wentz.

o_o wow...must cost an arm and a leg

*deadpan*


ohhh bad pun.

I got these mega cool arm warmers from Primark and there black and pink striped and oh so fluffy and wooly. I had to cut a little thumb hole in them so I can use them at college while were outside doing pratcial work. Yeah you try doing physics experements to try and calculate the speed of sound in -2C when everyone fucking knows it anyway! Arm warmers saved my life. *nodnod* VIVA LA ARMWARMERS! Thats the real shit there.

jess said...

like these, pete?

but i guess they aren't dior.

gimone said...

Arm warmers... I would like to have some.
Too bad I've never seen them here.

xxx
Joke

mindslipping said...

They just look like homeless dude gloves. *shrugs*. Guess I don't get "fashion".

julia said...

Lets just all hug to keep our arms warm

kevin426 said...

Those do look comfortable, I Want some! XD

Jennifer said...

this must be your new spot...

don't forget about the others, i kinda like it when you get all angsty and post future lyrics and shit for us on your other blog.

p.s. listen to everyone and use cut out socks--you could start a new fad.

love.

ChessA CatastrophE said...

Jennifer said...

cancel the other comment, i figured it out. there's a pattern developing here. you are taking pop culture things that affect you and using this blog to comment on them. which, in turn, means that you'll (most likey) still be updating the others.

panic attack over.
back to your regularly scheduled program.

love, man, love.

Julie said...

Well at least 12 would be an even number of arms.

Haha, I just saw the suggestion that you hold up the Dior store. Now, that would be an interesting option.

love.

icedmaple said...

Dude. Just go to Claire's Accessories and buy a pair of kids' legwarmers.

earthlove said...

Urban Outfitters has really good pairs of those, if you dont find the ones you want. But why would you need them in California?

grey.skies.dark.lies said...

niiice :]
but don't talk about arm warmers, I'm freezing... haha it's like 60 degrees and I'm cold :D

dustonabutterflyswing said...

Screw Dior! What is Clandestine's version gonna look like?

Anonymous said...

hey check if u can www.falloutboy.com.br

Beduss said...

if i could afford them, id buy them
But for now, i guess ill have to make do with cutting holes in socks or whatever.
And wow, the updates? 3 times a day or something?

Beduss said...

And everytime i see la written like that i always say 'la' instead of 'el-ay'
And how much are these then?

thatgirlfromfalloutboy said...

pete, this blog idea is awesome becos it separates you from the fob site, like you're here, just an ordinary boy writing stuff in between "shits" and "motherfuckers." maybe most of the celebs today are just ordinary on the inside. it's just the signature clothes, right? :)

naw, im not here to tell you where you could buy those warmers. but im here to say im proud of this blog tho. :)

il keep checking back on you.

xx

Pixi-sticks said...

I would never be able to affored anything dior on the salary of nothing and the allowance of nothing...Collecting change from the couches doesn't quite make you rich sadly...it does let me buy a nice pair from target thought :]

Deidre said...

well actually....i bought them all. sorry
;)

Rachel said...

They sell arm warmers of all sorts at Hot Topic, kiddo.

callilinz said...

haha only 12. good luck finding them.

Sam said...

oh wow. those look like the comfiest things ever. too bad I probably couldn't afford it, or I'd be combing the globe for them. maybe I could make my own? hmm. it's a thought. I hope you're successful in finding a pair. :)

M said...

They must be really expensive... I'll cut some socks BD Have a nice day Pete ;)

xohxmyxgod said...

Ohh I bought a pretty and colorful pair in a little store ^^
But my arms wamers are not Dior.
Too bad, huh?

Bianca said...

those are pretty hot.

Belgian_Girl said...

I saw them in a shop in Antwerp, but I didn't by them because they were a little too expensive :p

lindsay-007 said...

let me guess. they cost more than my tuition.

fancy.

chewbacca said...

hahaha i want a pair :]
i ahve a few pairs of arm warmers, in funk-ey 80s colours

Stacy said...

I have to say I think most designer clothes are overated, but these look pretty nice.

Too much money for me though, I'll just stick to my favorite band tees and jeans, thanks.

zwefanie said...

knit them yourself...

TurnUpTheMusicc said...

=D.

hope u find them. ebay? lol. prolly not. but good luck. they look fuzzy.

Left and Right said...

Those look like they should be on my hands right now. How rude.


And no, not 12. Just three. Two of those three were for display purposes only.

Anonymous said...

this reminds me of how my friend got me a Prada bracelet that they only made like two of, I feel so special. I like to think that Lindsay Lohan has the other one lol.

sqerll said...

Anonymous said...

wow, you really did turn hollywood.
its pretty sad, cause you used to be a down to earth kind of guy.
i guess people change when they come across some money.

always rember your true fans, but more importantly, your true friends.

diamond girl said...

lol fcuk that

i knitted my own with bright green yarn.

but those are still really nice.

Melanie said...

Aw, sorry they're sold out. I'm sure you'll manage to get a pair someday.

And if not, just design your own. They're probably end up way better anyway.

Or take up knitting. I can totally see you knitting between shows and stuff. Very rock'n'roll <3

shannonsayshi00 said...

Holy shit I want them

send me some ok, be a friend

[Jessica] said...

Pfft, you're fashion obsessed, Peter.
but that's okay.
I am too.
The difference?
I'm not rich enough to afford name brand stuff like that.
"Good God, just go to a garage sale" is what my mother would say =]
Have a nice day.

jaime said...

jeez, didn't you know? some orphan in uganda bought the last pair.

Emer said...

here's a pair...

catharsis20 said...

This reads more like a magazine adds than a journal..

How depressing.

please, keep all fashion statements for trends and runways.
paint something worth seeing with your words and intentions..

let us in.

19Annie88 said...

Lol they knew you were coming so they hid them all from you :)

I wish I got to wear things like that but we have no winter excpet for like... a day. That makes me sad.

hannah said...

meh, they dont look like theyre worth the money they probably cost. go to target, i think i saw some that were similar there last week ;)

Anonymous said...

OH, GAWDS...I have a pair of those but, I made them they look exactly like that...yeah, I LOVE YOU PETE...<3 I really do

dustonabutterflyswing said...

I just ordered some arm warmers and leg warmers! Damn power of suggestion!

Mara Issabel said...

i wish we had winter here. :(

Mara Issabel said...

hey peter, you're never going to blog at the other one, are you? i really love the free verse there. please write more of them. i mean, i don't understand half of what you're trying to say but... i think i can catch up. :)

terr-fab said...

I think arm warmers fall in the same line as leg warmers, pretty much useless

HardCandy said...

yeah, evrytime i get a pair of arm warmers, i always lose one
so i walk around w/ one arm all naked and cold =/
that arm hates me

HardCandy said...

yeah, everytime i get a pair of armwarmers i lose one

jedi-iwakura said...

Petepete.

I also wanted to say in my Q today, but totally forgot...

I was at work today, cleaning up the PSP game section, and I put a game on the shelf.

Prince of Persia: Rival Swords.

And for a second I thought I was staring at a picture of you.

Uncanny? Uncanny.

Jamie said...

Dior arm warmers.

Awesome, yet insane.
Arm warmers are all over the place, darling. :] Just not the Dior one, I guess. :) Good luck with finding that anyway. It's pretty. :D

It'll look hot on you. ;)

[long][live[[the][car][crash][hearts] said...

ah pete

maybe you'll have to make do with a replica pair?

or just go ask Ryan. That guy deals in gloves. I bet hes got some kinda loyalty card for them. or gets first refusal.

Anonymous said...

sweet lol O_o well umm. . . .

xwendyxdarlingx said...

dude, seriously, knit your own. or, you know, if you're too cool to learn to knit have someone do it for you. surely someone knows how, ask Andy? kidding, really.

Anonymous said...

Dude, it looks like something Ryan Ross would wear. Or would have worn a year ago. Thumbs up.

Dianna said...

yeah....they probably did only make like 12 of them...darn them...haha. =)

melanie said...

Want to know a secret? I'm about to go to bed, and I thought I'd check here one last time today to see if you updated... And you haven't (yet..? It could be 'cause of time zones.) Either way, I'm disappointed.

I wonder if that makes me at least a bit pathetic xD

thnksfrthmmrs517 said...

irishsaints said...

*scrunches face* ick.

personally, if its going to cost me over $100 though, i'll just find some sweet old gloves in the house. our gloves are so old and torn in so many places, i think they could be considered antiques. which is why i call them vintage.

Zora said...

YOU'RE PETE WENTZ! Of course you can get a pair somehow! Just order a pair or something, even better yet, sell Clandestine arm warmers! :) P.s. It's ok, I think we all accidently speed sometimes... ;P

takeyourgloves said...

you sound like such a fashionista. haha. =)

Jordy Wentz said...

Are you leaving FOE to come...HERE!
Cause FOE is awesome and its got a better layout and better settings and your name is Clandestine, not...A Boys Life!
Come on..
BTW; I was starting to notice that it had been 2 weeks sinceyour last journal entry about the BartSkull shaped cookies, and i was starting to get suspicious that you may have aet to many of them.
But then I stumbled across this!
Anyways, Foe is better so please come bak there!

devilwithalo666 said...

hey everyone is talking about pete's blog. i feel slightly out of the loop. can anyone fill me in with a direct link? please and thank you!
-cass

hilbil said...

possibly. i'd rather just make them myself instead of spend tons of money on something i could get for free. =]

bianchi said...

I saw arm warmers like that at Dior a couple of weeks ago.

It was weird because I live in Manila,Philippines and it's summer here almost all year round.hehehe.=D

XshesXstrychnineX said...

Dior arm warmers...how fancy....

Alyssa Moore said...

Dior is one of my fav designers. I'm a poor college student, but I'll save my money up for Dior from time to time.

kelly said...

omg they have a pair almost just like those, they sell them at buckles. for real! i have a pair, i love them.

Anonymous said...

do you really need a pair of armwarmers from dior when you can get pretty much the same from h&m. you should read tim harford.

natalie_lynn said...

i'm really cold right now.
i think i could use those.

erin said...

haha of course he went hollywood, didn't you notice him ditching the socalled love of his life for a popstar with a nosejob who just so happened to get him publicity? didn't need dior arm warmers to get clued into that one.

horror park rat jessica said...

Those are pretty amazing.
But they aren't your color.
I see you more in pink with multicolored polka dots.

Kate... said...

oOo stylish! Most people never wear stuff like that it gets too hot here in Australia (even in winter) and for some reason I don't feel the cold much. I wish it snowed here sometimes...
