This DIY project is the perfect thing to make any outfit worthy of New Year's Eve. It probably makes most of you think of Lady Gaga, but bloggers Andy Torres and Chiara Ferragni provide perfect inspiration for how to make the look wearable.



Here's how to make yours . . .

You will need:

How to make a mirror bra

- A plain black bra in your size
- A hot glue gun and glue sticks
- Small square mirrors (available at craft stores) How many you need will depend on your cup size. To give you an idea, I'm a D cup and I needed about 200 half-inch square mirrors.

How to make a mirror bra

Step 1. Hot glue the mirrors one by one until you've framed one cup all the way around.
Step 2. Begin the next round by glueing a mirror in each of the three corners and then connection them with rows of mirrors.
Step 3. Continue in this way, beginning each row with three mirrors in the three corners until there is a small triangular space in the center of the cup.
Step 4. Glue mirrors in the three corners of the triangle and then in the free spaces left.
Step 5. When the cup is completely covered, glue mirrors to the second cup in the same way.

What I wore today: 12/29/2011 (Trampoline)

I love wearing two similar colors together in a way most people would say clashes, like this purple dress with these magenta tights.

What I wore today: 12/28/2011 (Texas out of the girl)

Longhorn outfit: thrifted belt, urban outfitters dress with lace peter pan collar, green tights, leather boots, wooden board swing

Visiting family in Austin felt like the perfect time to wear this belt with the longhorn buckle. When I found it, one day at Goodwill, it reminded me of my family's homeland and my father's alma mater UT at Austin.

I was born in San Antonio and haven't lived in Texas since I was one. Although I've never technically lived here in Austin, my aunt and uncle's home here has been my home away from home for longer than I've actually lived in any one place.

Cincinnati will always be my hometown, but Texas is the old country.
