The Pretty Chic theme is a 3rd party Genesis Framework Theme created for feminine eCommerce bloggers. This theme has a basic layout but is filled with cool built-in features. The homepage is beautifully done.
On the homepage, you have a sticky menu bar. Under this, you have 2 blocks that you could use for ad space or a banner for a shop item or special promotion. Next, you have a secondary navigation bar for links followed by your homepage widgets. Make sure you set these up if you want to mimic the demo version. Detailed documentation comes with this theme.
The first widget on the page is square and is in a prime location for a slider plugin. Use this to link to blog posts, pages, and shop items. With the widgets on the homepage, you can add an autoresponder forum, showcase latest blog posts, and display shop items. You also get a sidebar with this theme. This is a great affordable ecommerce theme. Do check out our Genesis Framework Tutorials category for extra customization tips.
