What does it mean ''to buy clothes out of a catalog'?
A little girl is complaining to her mother that she's useless and life is not fair.
Then she tell her like this:
"But my friend Jane gets to buy clothes out of a catalog and she's the fastest runner in gym."
So what is the difference between 'to buy clothes out of a catalog' and 'to shop clothes'?

When we shop for clothes or go clothes shopping we go to a shop to buy them. If we buy clothes from a catalogue then we can shop from home and have them delivered to us. The text suggests that the catalog her friend gets clothes from is one that offers nicer and of course more expensive ones than she gets from the shops or market. Catalogue shopping in the UK also allows you to pay over a period of time(you can make weekly payments instead of paying when you receive the clothes) so you can budget for more expensive items.
