A dainty little purse won't do for Olivia Pope's on-the-go lifestyle. She needs a carry-all handbag that does the job, but still looks postively chic. Typically, you'll find her arm adorned with a structured, leather tote in a neutral hue. Forget bells and whistles, you want a bag that goes with everything and keeps your essentials in safekeeping.
