Well, if you expect you might need to cancel your original order, then order both and cancel the one you don't want!  Problem solved.
Maybe if you've been the highly successful CEO of an international fashion and retail corporation, I'll give more weight to your opinions.
Dearie? This woman?  What Angela Ahrendts has achieved and accomplished is orders of magnitude more than any of us commenting here ever have, and to those commenters who feel that they need to couch their critique in gender-condescending terms, that reveals a lot more about your own personal insecurity,  small-mindedness, and fear of women than her competence.
