I've hung a couple of pretty heavy wood-framed mirrors using these:

I agree with Pugs, a picture is needed if you want help. I assume the mirror is wood framed and the 27.5" is the width.
If you are trying to cover a pocket in the wall, we need to know what you want to attach the hinge to.
Some options would be the side of a stud, or building a simple face frame and attaching the hinges to the edge of the frame. Can't really help without pics.

This an Ikea Stave mirror with wooden frame. 27.5 " wide and 63 " long; 23 pounds. I would like to install it on the wall like a door and use the back of the mirror to hang jewelry as pictured. I would like to use invisible hinges so when the mirror/door is closed the hinges are not showing. I would prefer to use surface mount hinges so I don't have to do mortise.
I was planning to attach it to a wall stud. Any suggestions as to type/ brand/ size/ # of hinges to use? Thank you.

A continuous piano hinge will give it a clean look.
